The G6 Alliance announced that it would maintain the current 5-loop product structure for its Asia-North Europe service in 2013. It is anticipated that the current supply and demand balance will continue, thus the Loop 3 Asia-Europe service, which was suspended back in October, will not be reinstated. In order for customers to still enjoy the Alliance’s full network coverage, adjustments have been made to other services that would receive port calls from the Loop 3 service.
The G6 Alliance members are: Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, APL, Hapag-Lloyd, Hyundai Merchant Marine, Nippon Yusen Kaisha and Orient Overseas Container Line.
