The German carrier Hapag-Lloyd is soon to add a weekly ECNA – ECSA loop to its service portfolio through slots on the ‘Tango’ service, a service jointly operated by Hamburg-Süd and CSAV.

The weekly fixed-day ‘Tango’ service rotates in 49 days and deploys seven vessels in the 4,000 – 4,600 teu capacity range. It turns along the following port rotation:

New York, Philadelphia, Norfolk, Charleston, Jacksonville, Port Everglades, Suape, Santos, Buenos Aires, Rio Grande, Itapoa, Santos, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Pecem, New York.

For Hapag-Lloyd, the new slot allocation increases to three the number of links offered in this route corridor. The German liner operator already offers two connections through slotting on:

  • the ‘BX1’, operated by MSC
  • the ‘BEC’, operated by Hanjin, NYK, Evergreen and Yang Ming.

With the new participation in the ‘Tango’ loop, Hapag-Lloyd increases the scope of its ECNA coverage, with additional connections from Philadelphia, Charleston, Jacksonville and Port Everglades to Brazil, Argentina and back.
