Dear Valued Customer,

Hamburg Sud continues to put our customers supply chain at the forefront by investing in reliability of our ocean network connecting Australia and New Zealand with the North American continent.

We are pleased to announce our existing Oceania to the North American Westcoast direct PANZ service will be further enhanced to appropriately manage the congestions and operational challenges impacting end to end logistics – most recently across New Zealand ports. We have, therefore, strengthened the schedule to fit the operational conditions we see today. 

Highlights of our stronger product entails:

  • New rotation allowing for a more even port coverage in both Oceania & North America
  • Weekly calls to and from Auckland, NZ
  • Continuous weekly calls to and from Oakland & Long Beach, US

The rotation will be as follows:

Seattle* – Oakland – Long Beach – Auckland – Sydney – Melbourne – Tauranga – Papeete* – Surrey* – Oakland – Long Beach – Auckland – Sydney – Melbourne – Adelaide* – Tauranga – Seattle.


The new improved service will go into effect (subject to regulatory approval) from CAP JERVIS 316S departing Seattle, United States, on April 27th and CAP JERVIS 321N will depart Sydney, Australia, on June 3rd 2023.

We thank you in advance for your continued support and look forward to continuing to connect your supply chain.

Should you have any questions or require support, please reach out to your local Hamburg Süd Customer Experience representative.

With kind regards,
Your Hamburg Süd Team
