German shipping company adds N.O. port to service

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A German shipping company has added the Port of New Orleans to a weekly service connecting the city with several Latin American countries.

The port said Thursday that Hamburg Sud will provide the container service through a space charter agreement with Hapag-Lloyd.

The new service will connect New Orleans to ports in the Dominican Republic, Argentina, Uruguay, Mexico and Brazil.

Port president and CEO Gary LaGrange said in a statement that the new service gives customers better access and more frequent service to Latin American markets.
