THE Alliance said it plans to cover over 81 ports in the Asia/Europe, North Atlantic and Trans-Pacific trade lanes including the Middle East and the Arabian Gulf/Red Sea, MANA correspondent reported.
“After one year of cooperation we are proud to say that our services and the network improved significantly,” member carriers Hapag-Lloyd, Ocean Network Express and Yang Ming said.
“The business is well on track in operational terms and with the delivery of several new big ships we are able to serve our customers even better.”
The comprehensive network of 33 services would connect more than 81 major ports throughout Asia, North Europe, the Mediterranean, North America, Canada, Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, Indian Sub-Continent and the Middle East with fast transit times and a wide range of direct port-port-connections.
