Members of the G6 Alliance said that four additional sailings will be voided within their Asia-Europe product in response to drop in market demand.
The additional void sailings come on the back of G6 members’ cancellation of 10 peak season Asia-Europe sailings throughout June and July.
As informed, the following void sailings are planned for the subsequent services and weeks:
– Loop 6 service in week 40 (westbound ETA Kaohsiung, 01 October 2015). Kaohsiung will be added as a westbound call, while Jebel Ali will be inserted on the eastbound leg of Loop 7. The westbound Colombo and Xiamen calls will be added into Loop 4.
– Loop 7 service in week 41 (westbound ETA Qingdao 05 October 2015). Qingdao will be added to Loop 4 on the westbound leg in the corresponding week, while Gdansk, Gothenburg and Antwerp calls will be covered by Loop 5 on the eastbound direction during the same timeframe.
– Loop 4 service in week 42 (westbound ETA Ningbo 16 October 2015). The westbound Le Havre call will be covered by Loop 6 in the respective week.
– Loop 5 service in week 43 (westbound ETA Kwangyang 23 October 2015). The westbound Kwangyang and Pusan calls will be added in other loops in the respective week.
The G6 Alliance members are: APL, Hapag-Lloyd, Hyundai Merchant Marine, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Nippon Yusen Kaisha and Orient Overseas Container Line.
