West Africa Express Service (WAX) – Service Adjustment

We would like to inform you that Hapag-Lloyd will adjust the WAX Service Network by withdrawing the call at Apapa, Nigeria. Thereby, we will be substantially improve the transit times southbound to Abidjan and Tema. The very competitive northbound transit times remain unchanged.

At the same time Hapag-Lloyd will continue to offer a weekly service to Nigeria in transshipment via Tangier.
Furthermore, we will expand our exposure on the WMX service from/to the Mediterranean.

Starting with the sailing of MV Durande DP 42659 (voyage 1647S), the WAX will operate on following port rotation:
Antwerp – Hamburg – Tangier – Casablanca – Dakar – Tema – Abidjan – Tangier – Antwerp
