    OCEAN Alliance launches next phase in April 2018

    Following the success of the Day One products introduced earlier this year, OOCL has announced the forthcoming launch of the second phase of the OCEAN Alliance products in April 2018, an improved suite of products providing industry-leading services to customers, the company said in its press release.

    The second phase of the network will roll out more than 40 services by deploying approximately 340 containerships with an estimated total carrying capacity of 3.6 million TEUs to form an enhanced suite of products characterized by a number of improvements in various areas including service coverage, port pair connections, transit times, schedule reliability and operational efficiency.

    In Asia-Europe network, for instance, customers will find direct services for Northern China and the Baltic as well as the various hubs in the Mediterranean and Southeast Asia will provide excellent connections for their supply chains. Better transit time connections and additional frequency from the result of revamping current ATG1 service to focus on the Gulf and Mexico as well as introducing the new ATE2 product to serve the South Atlantic are also some of the modifications OCEAN Alliance making to improve services to customers.

    In the new product mix from the second phase, OOCL will be marketing our services as listed below:
