The Ocean Alliance members—CMA CGM, COSCO, Evergreen and OOCL—signed an agreement on January 9 to launch its Day 4 Product which is scheduled to start in April this year.

Under the agreement, the companies will deploy 325 containerships on 38 services, with an estimated carrying capacity of around 3.8 million TEUs. French container shipping giant CMA CGM will be the operator of 112 vessels.

With the Day 4 Product, the alliance will expand its global trade network and present more port calls, more direct links and shorter transit times for its customers.

The alliance was launched in spring 2017 and considered to be the world’s largest operational agreement between shipping companies. The evolution of the product will include: 

·       Nineteen services on the transpacific trade

·       Seven services between Asia and Europe

·       Four services between Asia and the Mediterranean

·       Two transatlantic services linking North Europe to the East Coast of the United States and the Gulf of Mexico

·       Four services between Asia and the Middle East

·       Two Asia-Red Sea services

One year after the extension of Ocean Alliance partnerships until 2027, the launch of the Day 4 Product will enable us to further strengthen the competitiveness and quality of CMA CGM’s offer. With this agreement, we are pursuing the continuous improvement of our services,” Rodolphe Saadé, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the CMA CGM Group, said at the signing ceremony.

1月9日,中远海运集团与其海洋联盟(OCEAN Alliance)合作伙伴法国达飞海运、长荣海运和东方海外共同签署“2020年海洋联盟航线布局及产品”  

根据协议,四家公司将共计投入325艘集装箱船、总运力约为380万标箱。其中法国达飞将派遣112艘船舶。 

联盟今年计划的航线产品包括39条航线服务(其中为1条联盟外大西洋航线),将于4 月开始运作。航线分别为:7条亚洲往返西北欧航线;4条亚洲往返地中海航线;19条跨太平洋航线,包含12条美西航线、7条美东及美湾航线;3条跨大西洋航线;4条远东往返波斯湾航线和2条远东往返红海航线。 

海洋联盟是全球目前最大的集装箱航运联盟,自2017年4月运营以来,航线产品不断得到优化。新的产品覆盖面更广,班期频率更密集,港到港服务独特,能有效缩减集装箱船的在港转运时间。 

达飞轮船董事会主席兼首席执行官鲁道夫·萨迪表示:“这次的新航线产品将使我们能够向客户提供更高质量,更具竞争性的服务。根据这项新协议,我们将继续完善我们的服务。” 

去年1月,海洋联盟在海南博鳌签署相关文件,将海洋联盟的合作期限正式延长至10年,即延长至2027年3月31日。
