Hapag Lloyd Restructures the East-Mediterranean Express (EMX Service)

Hapag-Lloyd has announced that it will further enhance its North Europe-Mediterranean product by restructuring the East-Mediterranean Express (EMX Service).

As of early January 2021, the ports of Bremerhaven and Valencia will be added to the weekly rotation. At the same time, a fifth vessel will be phased into the service in order to ensure high schedule reliability.
