ONE and Hapag-Lloyd ink feeder cooperation

Japanese container line joint venture Ocean Network Express (ONE) and Hapag-Lloyd concluded a bi-lateral feeder agreement that will initially cover trades in intra-Asia and intra-Europe.

The Bilateral Strategic Feeder Network Cooperation Agreement has already started on its first intra-Asia trade with the Bohai Feeder (BHX) in August, and will be expanded to include two more intra-Asian services.

On intra-Europe a new feeder service the North Sea Poland Express (NPX) will be introduced in mid-October and the cooperation will cover six other services.

“This new cooperation is another strong footnote to the existing bilateral partnership. We are convinced that together with Hapag-Lloyd, Ocean Network Express will continue to enrich our feeder network portfolio and provide more premium feeder service to our respective customers. Looking ahead, we are confident that the scope of this cooperation will be further broadened.” said Jeremy Nixon, ceo of ONE.

ONE and Hapag-Lloyd are both members of THE Alliance on the long haul trades.
