Nagoya joins Rickmers’ Pearl String Service

The service will provide a direct link to Houston, New Orleans, Savannah, Philadelphia, Antwerp and Hamburg, as well as offering additional relay opportunities through Rickmer’s hub in Houston to other ports in the Caribbean and Central/South America.

The upgraded service will employ nine Rickmers Hamburg-class vessels.

\”Adding an upgraded service with many additional ports of call will give companies in Nagoya the additional flexibility they seek and re-confirms Rickmers-Linie\’s commitment to Nagoya. Our specially-equipped vessels are extremely well suited for out-of-gauge and heavy cargoes,\” said Richard Stinchcombe, Representative Director & CEO, Rickmers (Japan) Inc.
