THE Alliance has reconfigured its network to include larger vessels.
The enhanced service setup will enter into effect from April 2023.
THE Alliance – whose members include carriers Hapag-Lloyd, Ocean Network Express (ONE), Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM), and Yang Ming – said one of the key highlights will be the deployment of larger newbuild ships to the Asia and North Europe trade.
A modern series of fuel-efficient 23,500+ TEU vessels will replace existing smaller ships.
This is part of THE Alliance’s commitment to offer more sustainable services by minimising the carbon footprint of its service network.
Another major upgrade will be the additional deployment of 14,000/15,000 TEU vessels on the Asia and Mediterranean trade as well as on the US East Coast trade.
Ocean Alliance Day 7 Product will launch in January 2023 with 40 services to meet capacity demand and offer more sustainable alternatives.
