Covid and Golden Week force THE Alliance to cancel October sailings

The members of THE Alliance, Hapag-Llloyd, Yang Ming, ONE and HMM, have updated the latest service adjustments in October.

This is a result of the demand changes in the global shipping market amidst the Covid-19 pandemic and the Chinese Golden Week holidays in early October, which have forced the largest shipping carriers to withdraw several sailings.

Asia and North Europe

FP1/FP2 will maintain their weekly sailings in October.

FE2/FE3 will maintain current rotation and their weekly sailings in October except for the following weeks:

Week 40 – FE2 void

Week 41 – FE3 void

For FE4, despite its temporary suspension, THE Alliance has deployed an Extra Loader Program as a substitute to cope with the market demand since Week 30. It will be voided on Week 40 & Week 41 and resume its sailings in Week 42 to Week 45 in October.

Asia and the Mediterranean
MD1/MD2/MD3 will maintain their weekly sailings in October except for the following weeks:

All PSW and PNW loops will be reinstated in October except for the following weeks:
Week 41 – PS4, PS8, PN3 and PN4 void
