Furthermore, Hapag-Lloyd has announced the termination of its India Gulf Service 2 (IG2), because the German carrier finds the current situation in India enormously challenging.

“Nevertheless we will be able to offer you alternative weekly service offerings for Hazira – Jebel Ali by our existing feeder partners,” added the company.

The IG2 service will be terminated with the last two sailings listed below:

  • Hazira to Jebel Ali: SIMA GISSELE V 0003 , ETA Hazira 31 July
