March 31, 2014 at 08:09 by FleetMon Container Liner News in Container Shipping

As of this April, Hanjin reshuffles its Mediterranean and Black Sea services with a temporary withdrawal from all Ukrainian and Romanian ports. Furthermore the ports of Damietta (Egypt) and Beirut (Lebanon) will temporarily not be covered by Hanjin, as a result of the changes.

Hanjin stops slotting on the Black Sea – Far East service ABX that is jointly operated by CSCL, Wan Hai, PIL and Yang Ming Marine. The service deploys 7 vessels on a weekly frequency. It has a 56 day-rotation due to one skipped sailing every 7 weeks.

Hanjin withdraws from the Turkey – Levant service TLS as an operator. The service however is continued by the other two operators Turkon and Arkas. The two Turkish operators will deploy 2 vessels instead of the previous 3 on a 9 day-frequency with an unchanged port rotation. The last voyage for Hanjin’s vessel LUDWIG SCHULTE ended on 18th March discharging at Port Said.

The Korean carrier will also end its slotting on United Feeder Service’s Egypt –Turkey service, named EGYPT/TURKEY1 by the operator and MED by Hanjin. The service deploys two vessels on a weekly frequency.

Hanjin will however engage in a new service, by taking slots on the Arkas operated Piraeus – Turkey service PTS. The service deploys the 907 TEU vessel NICOLAS A which runs on a weekly frequency. Hanjin will brand this service EM1.
