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.
