“Ocean Alliance” further increases capacity in services

The shipping companies of the “Ocean Alliance” have just extended their partnership until 2032. Now they are presenting their updated plans for the liner network.

The members of the “Ocean Alliance” – CMA CGM (France), Cosco, OOCL (China/Hong Kong) and Evergreen (Taiwan) – are launching their “Day 8 Product”. Due to the unstable situation in the Red Sea and the rerouting of many services around the Cape of Good Hope, the rotations will be adjusted. However, the service quality should not suffer, emphasises CMA CGM, the world’s No. 3 and largest partner in the network. [ds_preview]

In future, the four shipping companies will jointly deploy 321 container ships with a total capacity of 4.5 million TEU. This is 200,000 TEU more than before and makes the “Ocean Alliance” by far the largest liner alliance worldwide. More than a third of the tonnage is provided by CMA CGM.

“Ocean Alliance” increases its lead

By comparison, the “2M” of MSC and Maersk has a good 2.8 million TEU, while “THE Alliance” with ONE, HMM and Yang Ming under the leadership of Hapag-Lloyd has just over 3 million TEU. When Maersk and Hapag-Lloyd sail in the “Gemini Cooperation” from February 2025, they intend to put 3.4 million TEU on the water together.

They will operate 35 services on the world’s most important routes. These include six services between Asia and Northern Europe, four services between Asia and the Mediterranean, 20 transpacific services, eight services between Asia and the US East Coast and 12 additional services to the US West Coast, two transatlantic services, three services between Asia and the ports of the Persian Gulf. Two other services that previously connected the Far East with ports in the Red Sea will remain suspended for the time being.

The CMA CGM Group is committed to achieving carbon-free operations by 2050. By 2027, the shipping company led by Rodolphe Saadé aims to operate more than 120 container ships powered by low-carbon fuels.
