Hapag-Lloyd, new East Africa Service 2

Hapag-Lloyd will further enhance its East Africa product by introducing the new East Africa Service 2 (EAS 2), which will directly link the Arabian Gulf and the West Coast of India with East Africa. Further connection to our global mainliner services will be executed via Jebel Ali.

With effect as of end of September, Hapag-Lloyd will enter a co-operation with partners to become a vessel provider in an existing service connecting West Indian and Middle East Gulf ports to Mombasa and Dar es Salaam.

The port rotation will be as follows:

Nhava Sheva - Mundra - Khor Fakkan - Jebel Ali - Mombasa - Dar es Salaam - Nhava Sheva 

EAS2 will connect to numerous Hapag-Lloyd mainliner services at Jebel Ali, offering competitive lead times between global markets.

Hapag-Lloyd will continue to offer a wide range of hinterland connections, such as Burundi, Congo D.R., Rwanda, Uganda and Zambia via gateways of Mombasa and Dar es Salaam.

The first estimated departure times of EAS2 will be:

  • Southbound: Nhava Sheva September 29, 2018
    Jebel Ali October 5, 2018
  • Northbound: Mombasa October 13, 2018
    Dar Es Salaam October 18, 2018

At the same time, East Africa Service (EAS) will be terminated.
The last estimated EAS departure times will be:

  • Southbound: Spero 1840S, Jeddah October 8, 2018
  • Northbound: Spero 1840N, Mombasa October 19, 2018
    Dar Es Salaam October 22, 2018
