Hapag-Lloyd has announced it will commence a new service in Latin America, named WCSA Feeder 4 (WS4).
The new service will launch in June and the deployed container vessels will sail under the following port rotation:
Calla (Peru) - Iquique (Chile) - Puerto Angamos (Chile) - Arica (Chile) - Callao (Peru)
Hapag-Lloyd said the first boxship that will use this new rotation will be the 2023-built Cape Bruno, which is expected to arrive at Callao port on 5 June.
The German ocean carrier said the new service will provide stronger schedule reliability, and extended port coverage, while the service is expected to replace transshipments from San Antonio in Chile to Callao.
