Hapag-Lloyd launches South-East India – Europe express service

Hamburg-based company IEX service to launch in October

The Hamburg-based Hapag-Lloyd is gearing up to launch its new, direct South-East India – Europe Express (IEX) service from October to strengthen the company’s leading position in South-east India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh to and from North Europe. The service will include direct connections between India, the Middle East (Jeddah and Damietta) and Europe (Piraeus, Le Havre, Antwerp, Rotterdam, Hamburg and London Gateway). The weekly IEX service will be jointly operated with ONEYML and COSCO and will consist of nine 6,500 TEU vessels with Hapag-Lloyd contributing four ships.

Connection to global network

Dr. Maximilian Rothkopf, Chief Operating Officer at Hapag-Lloyd, said: “Our customers have been talking to us about their growing needs in the Indian and Bangladeshi markets, and we have been listening. The introduction of the IEX is a game changer, as it will be the first dedicated direct service from South-East India to Europe, offering connectivity to the global network of Hapag-Lloyd.” The first departures are scheduled from October 26, 2019.
