The members of the Ocean Alliance which launches next April have outlined their global network plans.
Cosco Shipping, CMA CGM, Evergreen and Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL) today signed a document entitled the Day One Product, which sets out the proposed alliance network, including port rotation for each service loop.
The Day One network intends to deploy around 350 container vessels with an estimated total carrying capacity of 3.5m teu.
The grouping will offer 20 transpacific services, six Asia-Europe sailings, five Asia-Mediterranean offerings, three transatlantic routes, five Asia-Middle East links and two Asia-Red Sea services.
“Ocean Alliance is the largest operational agreement ever made between shipping companies. With more than 40 maritime services, we will be sharing our fleet with the largest Asian shipping companies,” said Rodolphe SaadĂ©, vice chairman of CMA CGM.
“We are very pleased with our progress and close collaboration with our partners in putting together an outstanding selection of Day One Products,” said Andy Tung, ceo of OOCL.
