THE Alliance member lines - Hapag-Lloyd, Ocean Network Express (ONE), and Yang Ming - have announced details of their revamped service network for 2019.

The new service network, which is subject to the usual regulatory approvals, is expected to commence shortly after the Chinese New Year, which falls in early February 2019.

THE Alliance will deploy a fleet of more than 249 modern ships connecting 76 ports throughout Asia, North Europe, the Mediterranean, North America, Canada, Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, Indian Subcontinent, the Middle East and Red Sea.

The standout feature of THE Alliance service restructure is its new east-west pendulum service which will replace the existing Far East Europe 1 service (FE1), Pacific Southwest 1 service (PS1) and Pacific Southwest 2 service (PS2), and a new Pacific Northwest 4 service (PN4), offering a wider range of direct calls across North America West Coast, Europe and Asia. The launch of PN4 service will provide more efficient and comprehensive links between Asia and PNW, the member lines said in a statement.

'Moving forward, a necessary capacity upgrade to the existing Asia-Europe network and overall optimised port-pair connections will be implemented to accommodate customers' needs of greater reliability and stability in service quality,' added the statement.
