Amid Red Sea Disruption German Shipper Offers Land Route

German shipping group Hapag-Lloyd will be introducing land corridors through Saudi Arabia to mitigate the impact on its business.

But the German shipping giant will continue to route its vessels around the Cape of Good Hope until further notice due to Houthi attacks on vessels in the Red Sea.

In a statement, the shipping company said it would offer land connections from Jebel Ali, Dammam and Jubail to its ocean shuttle service out of Jeddah.

“We continue to monitor and review the situation constantly. As soon as the situation changes, and it is safe again, we will route our vessels through Red Sea and Suez Canal,” it added.

“Our aim is to provide our customers with a convenient contingency solution to overcome this unexpected closure until the situation in the Red Sea has been normalised,” it said.
