    OOCL rolls out third phase of Ocean Alliance product refinements

    OOCL announced further refinements to the OCEAN Alliance product mix this year.

    Competition in the industry remains fierce. The third phase of the OCEAN Alliance products have been developed to improve overall competitive position while meeting the evolving needs of the global supply chain in today’s increasingly volatile market environment. Since the introduction of the Day One products in 2017, the OCEAN Alliance members have constantly set high quality standards and maintained very competitive schedule reliability levels while offering the most comprehensive network as possible.

    For instance, service enhancements made this year in the Trans-Pacific trade includes broadening market coverage in South China and Southeast Asia with a new direct call to Taipei on the PSW service as well as Cai Mep on the ECX1 to meet customer needs. OOCL express service to the U.S. Gulf Coast has also been expanded with the addition of the new GCC2 product, offering greater schedule flexibility to customers and their supply chains.

    Customers will also find marked improvements in the Asia-Europe network. With the addition of the new Loop 7 product, the increased service frequency between Asia and North Europe will allow for greater loading flexibility, confidence on service commitments, as well as room for growth through the extended network coverage.

    Service quality in the Baltic and Scandinavian regions will get a boost through connections to strategic hubs such as Gdansk, Hamburg, Wilhelmshaven and Rotterdam using our efficient feeder network in the Baltic. Customers can also leverage our strength and continual growth in the Mediterranean network through our presence at the Piraeus hub. Connection to the Middle East markets have also been strengthened by making permanent port calls to Jebel Ali.

    In alignment to the product refinements, OOCL will be marketing our services within the OCEAN Alliance scope as presented below:
