G6 Cuts Asia – North America Services

Container lines gathered under the G6 Alliance are reducing their Asia – North America services through the Winter Program due to ”traditional seasonal changes in market demand.”

The G6 Alliance will combine the NYE and SCE services within their Asia – North America East Coast Service into a single service with the following port rotation: Xiamen – Kaohsiung – Hong Kong – Yantian – Shanghai (Yangshan) – Pusan – Panama Canal – Manzanillo – Kingston – Savannah – Charleston – New York – Norfolk – Jacksonville – Kingston – Manzanillo – Panama Canal – Balboa – Pusan – Xiamen.

The first sailing of the combined service will start from Xiamen on October 29, 2015.

On their Asia – North America West Coast Service, the alliance will temporarily suspend the Central China 2 (CC2) service between Asia and the North America West Coast during the winter period starting from November.

The last eastbound sailing for CC2 will be from Ningbo on October 18, and the last westbound sailing will be from Long Beach on November 5. The Pusan eastbound call will be added to the CC4 during the CC2 suspension resulting in the following rotation: Shanghai (WaiGaoQiao) – Ningbo – Pusan – Los Angeles – Oakland – Shanghai (WaiGaoQiao)

The G6 Alliance members are: APL, Hapag-Lloyd, Hyundai Merchant Marine, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Nippon Yusen Kaisha and Orient Overseas Container Line.
