In addition, Hapag-Lloyd has announced that the temporary bi-weekly sailing frequency of our MGX service has been extended until September, again due to the continued lack of cargo.

Below are the revised departure dates for the months of July and August.

 

An alternative to the MGX is the carrier’s MPS service that calls at Cartagena as a final destination or as a transhipment port. For all other destinations please defer to the adjacent MGX sailing.
