THE Alliance withdraws Rotterdam call from F4 service

THE Alliance has decided to terminate calling Rotterdam on the Eastbound rotation of its Far East Loop 4 (FE4) for a period of seven consecutive weeks, starting from week 25 and lasting until week 31.

The container alliance of Hapag-Lloyd, Yang Ming, Ocean Network Express (ONE) and HMM made this decision due to the ongoing congestion in the major Dutch port, according to a statement.

"We will continue to serve the port of Rotterdam on several loops still, in particular on Far East Loops 2 and 8," said Hapag-Lloyd, which has also published the following omissions along with alternative starting voyages:

The original FE4 rotation is Qingdao – Pusan – Ningbo – Shanghai – SPRC – (Suez) – Algeciras – Rotterdam – Hamburg – Antwerp – Rotterdam – Algeciras – (Suez) – Singapore – Qingdao.
