Hamburg Sud recently announced it is enhancing service between Australia and Southeast Asia, which will see faster transit times between the routes and two new direct calls at Port Kelang and Jakarta.
The Germany-based container shipping company said it will offer faster transit times to and from all key markets in Australia and Southeast Asia including the new direct calls.
Customers will also benefit from an express Brisbane to Southeast Asia hub connection, arriving in Singapore in 12 days, as well as market-leading transit times from Southeast Asia to Fremantle, Adelaide and Brisbane.
"Oceania trade has always been a key element in Hamburg Sud’s global network of liner services," the company said in a statement.
The expanded and enhanced operation in the route will begin in October 2019.
The service will be split into two strings called AUSE 1 and AUSE 2.
The AUSE 1 string will be equipped with seven vessels with a nominal capacity of 8,500 TEU, heading first to Fremantle and running counter-clockwise around Australia.
The AUSE 2 string consists of six ships at a nominal capacity of 5,700 TEU, sailing first to Brisbane, with a clockwise rotation around Australia. The same Australian ports will be covered on both slings, providing premium port coverage and transit times.
