Hapag-Lloyd to upgrade its EMX service

Hapag-Lloyd has announced it will restructure the East – Mediterranean Express (EMX) service in order to further enhance its North Europe-Mediterranean product.

As of early January 2021, the ports of Bremerhaven and Valencia will be added to the weekly rotation, according to an announcement from Hapag-Lloyd.

The new port rotation will be Felixstowe – Hamburg - Bremerhaven – Antwerp – Piraeus – Izmit – Istanbul – Gemlik – Aliaga – Valencia - Felixstowe.

Additionally, the first southbound voyage from Felixstowe will start on 13 January 2021 and the northbound voyage from Piraeus on 29 January 2021.

At the same time, the German carrier will deploy one more vessel into the service "in order to ensure high schedule reliability." Overall, five container ships will be phased into the service, but their names have not been revealed yet.

The EMX will also offer competitive transit times and connectivity to the company's global mainline network via Hapag-Lloyd hub ports such as Hamburg, Antwerp, Piraeus and Istanbul, said the firm.
