Hapag-Lloyd And Maersk Resume Services To Ukraine’s Black Sea Ports


Hapag-Lloyd has started a sea shuttle service between Constanta and Chernomorsk, while Maersk, in cooperation with Iteris, has launched the first deep-sea container service to Ukraine.

Restart feeder service

MSC Mediterranean Shipping plans to restart feeder service offerings to the port of Odesa, with the first call designated for mid-June this year.

This service will start on 27 May, with departures after every five days.

Unique shuttle service 

The unique shuttle service has been designed to provide significant benefits, including schedule flexibility, the availability of reefer plugs, particularly for refrigerated cargo, and the avoidance of highly congested inland channels.

In association with Ukraine’s feeder operator Iteris, Maersk is using a vessel with a more than 1,100 TEU capacity to link the port of Chornomorsk with Constanta.

The service will operate between the ports of Tekirdag and Odesa, with the first call fixed for mid-June.

The Turkish shipping firm Akkon has initiated feeder services to Chornomorsk with the help of its vessels.

Akkon, the company that has operated services to the port of Izmail since the start of the war, is likely to use its established presence to transfer massive volumes to larger vessels with improved scheduling.
