Hapag-Lloyd enters Helsingborg with a second loop

The container shipping line has introduced a new weekly route that links the Swedish seaport with Antwerp and Rotterdam in the North Sea and Fredericia and Gdynia in the Baltic.

The new loop is served by the container ships Africa and Carolina (the 225 m-long Africa is to date the longest box carrier to ever call at Helsingborg).

"It is gratifying that Hapag-Lloyd has added another weekly call. It only shows that we're doing our job well," Nicklas Romell, CCO, the Port of Helsingborg, underlined.

Richard Borggreve, Director Operations, Hapag-Lloyd Nordic, added to this, "We have been steadily increasing our volumes sent via the Port of Helsingborg for the past few years, a port with which we want to continue advancing in the future. Ships are becoming bigger, a trend that's clearly visible, so it's particularly important to have ports that can take care of handling them. Helsingborg is both an effective and reliable port."
