HONG KONG – APL, Maersk Line and OOCL on Tuesday announced a new cooperation on three existing Far East to Indian Subcontinent services beginning in February 2014.
A total of 18 vessels with a combined capacity of about 17,500 TEU will be deployed to the three Far East-Indian Subcontinent services in a Slot Sharing Agreement that also includes partners CMA CGM, Emirates Shipping Line, Hamburg Süd and Regional Container Lines.
The enhanced services will enable the carriers to offer three weekly sailings – covering China, Korea, India, Pakistan, Malaysia and Singapore – compared to one weekly sailing currently offered independently by each liner.
