Dear customer, 

During 2023 the vessels on our RIVER PLATE EXPRESS Service will be undergoing mandatory dry docking for maintenance. While in dry dock we will also undertake retrofitting projects to further strengthen the decarbonization journey and minimize the carbon footprint of your cargo.

To ensure that we can continue to offer you the best in market schedule reliability and seamless flow of your cargo, we will be adding CAP SAN SOUNIO to the service, which has the same size capacity as the rest of the fleet while transhipping cargo destined for East Coast South America in Tangier during the phase in & out weeks.

Please note that there are no expected changes to transit times.

The following vessel is planned for dry dock phasing out in Tangier Southbound:

  • CAP SAN AUGUSTIN voy 329S phasing out 04/August 2023. Replaced by SAN LORENZO MAERSK.

Following vessels phase in & out schedules TBD.
