Hupac is increasing the rotations for two lines connecting Germany to Europe. The first line, connecting Duisburg Hohenbudberg, in North-Western Germany and Pordenone, in North-Eastern Italy, will double its weekly rotations, from 3 to 6. The second line, linking Ludwigshafen, in Western Germany, with Novara, in North-Western Italy, will also see its rotations increase from 5 to 6 per week. Both increases will be effective as of 5 September.
