Adjustments to the AANZ Service
(Florham Park, NJ)…The Oceania supply chain continues to be negatively impacted by the global supply chain disruption. In Oceania we continue to experience terminal congestion and suspension of proforma berthing windows impacting our schedules. At Hamburg Süd we are committed to restore schedule reliability to offer our customers a more consistent service to enable improved supply chain planning despite the current dynamic environment.
In order to protect schedule reliability on our service, while improving product consistency and enable a stable weekly product, we will be making the following structural service adjustments to the service schedule, connecting Oceania with East Coast US and the Americas:
1) We will reinstate Port Chalmers, NZ as a weekly call.
2) In order to protect the schedule integrity on the service, the current bi-weekly call at Port of Napier, NZ, will be removed from the service.
We remain committed to continue to support NZ export cargo from Napier and will offer alternative products on our Southern Star and J-Star service and offer two weekly calls at port of Napier.
The above outlined changes will be effective from the “Oluf Maersk“ voyage 152N, departing Sydney on December 31, 2021.
The new weekly rotation will therefore be as follows:
Sydney > Melbourne > Port Chalmers > Tauranga > Panama Canal > Manzanillo > Cristobal > Cartagena > Philadelphia > Charleston > Panama Canal > Balboa > Tauranga > Sydney
Please contact your Hamburg Süd representative with any questions that you may have.
