Before Hapag-Lloyd exit – THE Alliance adjusts services

The container alliance “THE Alliance” is a discontinued model. But they are still sailing together and adapting their liner services to the global situation.

The liner alliance “THE Alliance” (THEA), founded in 2017 and with a half-life of one year in its current composition, has reconfigured the liner network. The aim is to improve port coverage, it says.

Hapag-Lloyd, ONE (Singapore), HMM (South Korea) and Yang Ming (Taiwan) work together in “THEA”, with the Hamburg-based company accounting for around a quarter of the joint capacity. This will come to an end at the end of January 2025, when Hapag-Lloyd will switch to the “Gemini Cooperation” with Maersk.

Until then, “we would like to emphasize our full commitment to maintain a solid cooperation until 2024 and ensure that the highest standards are offered to our stakeholders and the industry as a whole,” according to a customer information.

THE Alliance responds to geopolitical situation

From April 2024, when the new “THE Alliance” timetable comes into force, additional ships will be deployed on certain services to ensure more port calls and greater reliability, according to a statement from the partners. At the same time, the network is being adapted to market conditions, i.e. less demand for cargo on some routes.

For example, THE Alliance’s winter program on the Asia-North Europe and Transpacific-Southwest trades will be extended until further notice. This means fewer departures and ships.

And here is an overview of the new services:
