The member container lines of the Ocean Alliance have extended their cooperation until 2027.

Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL) has announced the introduction of three new Asia-South Africa services that include direct calls to ports such as Durban, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth.

Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL) has confirmed plans for a 2020 low sulphur cap bunker surcharge.

THE Alliance and members of the Ocean Alliance are merging two Meditterranean – US East Coast services.

Major container lines Ocean Network Express (ONE), Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL) and APL all say that the costs of complying with the 2020 low sulphur cap will have to be passed onto customers.

Building ahead of demand, the recent port call of the 8,063 teu OOCL Seoul has shown that the foresight of International Container Services Inc (ICTSI)’s Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT) at the Port of Melbourne is paying off as bigger vessels are now starting to be cascaded into the Asia-Australia trades.

Orient Overseas Container Lines (OOCL) saw second quarter total volumes rise 4.6% to 1.69m teu from 1.62m teu in the same period in 2017 and the volume gains were also able to be translated into good gains with total revenues increasing by 4.0% to $1.46bn although average revenue per teu fell by 0.6%.

Global shipment management software solutions provider CargoSmart, working with Oracle, has launched an initiative to develop a blockchain solution for shipment documentation to improve complex supply chain processes that it claims can cut down document processing time by 65%.
