G6 Alliance Announces Port Rotations

Press Release
Monday, March 18, 2013

After agreeing to expand the successful G6 Alliance to the transpacific trade earlier this year, the six member lines announced the port rotations of their new comprehensive and competitive service portfolio.
 
The new expanded cooperation will start in May with six coordinated services in the Asia-to-North America East Coast trade. It will deploy more than 50 efficient vessels with capacities between 4,500 and 8,000 TEU to connect about 30 ports in Asia, United States and Canada East Coast, Central America, Caribbean, Indian Subcontinent, Mediterranean and the Middle East to form a fast and reliable service product. Three of the enhanced services will transit the Suez Canal while the other three loops will sail via the Panama Canal. Compared to the existing transpacific service offerings of The New World Alliance and the Grand Alliance, the total capacity provision of the new service product by the G6 Alliance will be similar.
 
The six new loops in the Asia-to-North-America East Coast trade are the result of the merger and revision of several existing services separately offered by the two alliances today plus one entirely new service, the CEC. The two services APX (The New World Alliance) and PAX (Grand Alliance) will not be affected by the new cooperation and will continue to sail unchanged. The port rotations of the new G6 Alliance services are as follows:
 
AZX
Laem Chabang – Singapore – Colombo – (Suez Canal) – Damietta – Cagliari – Halifax –
