The ‘MCA’ is operated by Hapag-Lloyd with five vessels on a 35-day round trip.

  • the Mediterranean – WCNA ‘MPS’: a Lisbon call is to be added and to become the first European, with the 2,824 teu SOFIA SCHULTE making the initial visit on 9 July. The service is a joint operation of Hapag-Lloyd and Hamburg Süd and turns in 11 weeks. The new rotation reads as follows: Livorno, Genoa, Fos, Barcelona, Valencia, Cartagena, Panama Canal (waypoint), Manzanillo (Mexico), Los Angeles, Oakland, Tacoma, Vancouver, Portland, Oakland, Los Angeles, Manzanillo (Mexico), Panama Canal (waypoint), Manzanillo (Panama), Cartagena, Caucedo, Lisbon (new), Tanger Med, Valencia, Cagliari.
