THE Alliance, which includes Hapag-Lloyd, Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM), Ocean Network Express (ONE), and Yang Ming, today (24 February) announced updated details of its 2020 service network, focusing on the Asia-Middle East trade-lane.
THE Alliance will introduce three newly organised express loops from early April (week 15), when the overall new product starts.
Seven (7) vessels of 6,000TEU capacity will be deployed on each of the three services, a Hapag-Lloyd spokesperson told Container News. However, the final transit timetables are not available.
These services will provide higher frequency, direct and expanded coverage and the fastest connection from the respective regions, according to a statement.
