CONTAINER SERVICE: New port call for Rickmers

From September the Japanese port of Nagoya will be added to Rickmers-Linie’s Round the World Pearl String Service schedule on a monthly basis. The service will allow cargo to be shipped directly to Houston, New Orleans, Savannah, Philadelphia, Antwerp and Hamburg, as well as offering services via the hub port of Houston to ports in the Caribbean and Central and South America.

The new upgraded service will be operated by nine vessels from the Rickmers Hamburg class fleet, which are purpose-designed conventional vessels with strengthened pontoon tweendecks, hold lengths up to 32m and shipboard cranes that can be twinned to lift up to 640mt. These 30,000dwt ships are not dependent on the availability of landside heavylift cranes to unload. The vessels are also extremely well suited for out of gauge and heavy cargoes.
