Hyundai Merchant Marine has become a full member of THE Alliance - which already includes Hapag-Lloyd, Ocean Network Express and Yang Ming. With the FMC acceptance of Hyundai Merchant Marine membership, THE Alliance us unveiled an upgraded product package that will be launched around April 1, 2020. 

Last week, the Ocean Alliance announced its Day 4 product which will also start operation in April 2020.

The new product package from THE Alliance will offer increasing frequency particularly from South East Asia, as well as new direct port coverage and improved transit times.

The upgraded service package includes:

A new pendulum service replacing the existing Asia-Europe FE5 and Transpacific PS7 services. This new service will be operated by 18 modern 14,000+ TEU ships and will provide added weekly Transpacific coverage between South East Asia and Southern California, thereby expanding the number of services directly covering this lane to three, in addition to FP1 and PS3. A modified PS3 will offer new direct coverage of Haiphong.

Further to the enhanced Transpacific coverage of South East Asia, a new Transpacific loop, PS8, will be inaugurated focusing on Central China and Korea (including new coverage of Incheon).

For Asia and North Europe, the group will deploy two 20,000+ TEU vessel services in a newly revised FE2 and FE4 design.
