G6 Alliance to maintain current 5-loop product structure for Asia-North Europe service in 2013
Auther - Press Release Enter Date - 2013-01-21
The G6 Alliance announced today that it will
maintain the current 5-loop product structure for its Asia-North Europe
service in 2013.

“We anticipate
the current supply and demand balance will continue and we will not be
reinstating the Loop 3 Asia-Europe service,” members of the Alliance
said in a joint statement. The Loop 3 service was suspended in October
2012 as part of the Alliance’s winter programme.

The G6
Alliance will continue offering a variety of services between the Far
East and Europe covering all major port pairs with weekly sailings.

In addition, adjustments have been made to the Alliance’s other
services to accommodate port calls from the Loop 3 service to ensure
that customers continue to enjoy the full network coverage the Alliance

For example, the Alliance had in October started a
feeder shuttle between German ports and Gothenburg. A new call at Jeddah
has also been included in the Loop 4 service, as with a new call at
Hong Kong in the Loop 7.

The G6 Alliance members are: APL,
Hapag-Lloyd, Hyundai Merchant Marine, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Nippon Yusen
Kaisha and Orient Overseas Container Line.
