OOCL rolls out 3rd phase of Ocean Alliance product refinements

[ March 12, 2019   //   ]

As the OCEAN Alliance enters its third year, OOCL announced service enhancements this year in the Trans-Pacific trade. These include broadening market coverage in South China and Southeast Asia with a new direct call to Taipei on the PSW service as well as Cai Mep on the ECX1.

Its express service to the US Gulf Coast has also been expanded with the addition of the new GCC2 product, offering greater schedule flexibility to customers and their supply chains.

Customers will also find marked improvements in the Asia-Europe network. With the addition of the new Loop 7 product, the increased service frequency between Asia and North Europe will allow for greater loading flexibility, confidence on service commitments, as well as room for growth through the extended network coverage.

Service quality in the Baltic and Scandinavian regions will get a boost through connections to strategic hubs such as Gdansk, Hamburg, Wilhelmshaven and Rotterdam using its feeder network in the Baltic.  Customers can leverage OOCL’s Mediterranean network through its Piraeus hub. Connection to the Middle East markets have also been strengthened by making permanent port calls to Jebel Ali.
