THE Alliance unveils final network of 32 services covering 75 ports


THE Alliance liner shipping consortia has unveiled its final network of 32 services connecting 75 ports deploying more than 240 ships.

"The product starting from April 2017 features fast transit times, a comprehensive port coverage and deployment of modern and most efficient ships. This is thanks to the 'best ship for the loop principle?and a dedicated shuttle service design," said the member carriers Hapag-Lloyd, "K" Line, MOL, NYK and Yang Ming in a joint statement.

"Through this robust network, THE Alliance will offer a superior, reliable, efficient, and wide ranging product suite to shippers in the East/West lanes. The partners of THE Alliance will keep monitoring customers' demand and will react to markets if needed," the statement added.

Meanwhile, the members of THE Alliance announced a new and unique contingency plan in the unlikely event a member of THE Alliance suffers a bankruptcy.

"The five member lines will establish an independent trustee to manage funds to be used in case there is insolvency within the group. It is envisioned that the fund will be used to continue alliance operations in the event of insolvency of one or more member lines.

"The independent trust fund shall safeguard that customers' cargo on board of the affected members' ships will be carried to the port of destination.

"Customers' reaction to the incident last summer showed a clear demand for such a safety net and the partners of THE Alliance are proud to present the first contingency plan of its kind in liner shipping" the statement concluded.
