In response to growing demand, Hapag-Lloyd will offer more services from and to India. Two new services, the South East India – Europe Express and the Middle East-India-Africa Express will enter into operation in October. Both the IEX and the MIAX will further strengthen and optimize Hapag-Lloyd’s market-leading position in India and connect the country even more closely to North Europe and Africa. Mr Dheeraj Bhatia Senior Managing Director of Hapag-Lloyd’s Region Middle East said that we believe in serving the needs of all Indian customers. To do that, a comprehensive service coverage is essential and the IEX and MIAX will be an optimal addition to our existing service portfolio.

However, the IEX will provide the only direct connection between South and East India and Europe in the market. The weekly service, jointly operated with ONE, YML and COSCO, will be made up of nine 6,500 TEU vessels, with Hapag-Lloyd contributing four ships. The first departures are scheduled for 26 October.

Mr Rizwan Soomar CEO and Managing Director of DP-World Indian sub-continent, one of the leading terminal providers in the country, said that “Hapag-Lloyd has a strong network of services connecting key markets through Indian ports. The launch of two new services IEX and MIAX will create stronger opportunities for EXIM cargo and for Indian manufacturers to cater to global markets. At DP World, it is our constant endeavour to deliver the best services to our partners in the supply chain with highest levels of efficiency. We are extremely pleased to be chosen by Hapag-Lloyd yet again as it reinforces their confidence in our capabilities to add value to trade. We will work closely with Hapag-Lloyd to ensure that customers benefit from our multi modal logistics capabilities in the country to effectively manage their supply chains.”
