G6 Alliance announces port rotations for service expansion

The G6 Alliance members have released the proposed port rotations for the expansion of Asia-North America West Coast and Trans-Atlantic services.

The move, proposed at the end of 2013, is now undergoing regulatory assessment and, if approved, will start in the second quarter of 2014. The expansion will bring G6’s service offering to 29 routes, covering all three major East-West trade lanes.

“The G6 Alliance monitors market developments closely and is continuously seeking opportunities to improve our service offerings,” the coalition of APL, Hapag-Lloyd, Hyundai Merchant Marine, Mitsui OSK Lines, Nippon Yusen Kaisha and Orient Overseas Container Line said in a statement. “With the introduction of the Asia-North America West Coast and Trans-Atlantic services, the G6 Alliance will further strengthen its position to meet shippers’ demand for more comprehensive, seamless and efficient services with competitive transit times.

“Further, each of the G6 Alliance members will be able to offer its customers significantly improved port-pair connections compared to their previous products.”
