Hapag-Lloyd will further expand its global port coverage by introducing a dedicated service linking our comprehensive global mainliner service network with key ports in East Africa.
Effective beginning of April 2018, Hapag-Lloyd will be deploying four (4) vessels into our newly established East Africa Service (EAS). The service will connect our global liner network to East Africa via Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) with weekly connections to and from Mombasa (Kenya) and Dar es Salaam (Tanzania).
Jeddah – Mombasa – Dar es Salaam – Jeddah
At Jeddah, the EAS will connect to numerous Hapag-Lloyd mainliner services, offering you competitive lead times to and from global markets.
Simultaneously, Hapag-Lloyd will be establishing local representation in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda through Diamond Shipping Services Ltd. This will enable us to provide you with a wide range of hinterland connections, such as Burundi, Congo D.R., Malawi, Rwanda, South Sudan, Uganda and Zambia via the gateways of Mombasa and Dar es Salaam.
