CMA CGM (FocusAsia Media Ltd)

LE HARVE, Nov 4 (FAM) – Members of the Ocean Alliance today unveiled the proposed network for what it claims will be “the largest shipping alliance in the world”, which is due to begin operating in April with a fleet of nearly 350 vessels with around 3.5 million teu in total capacity.

The four partners – CMA CGM, COSCO Container Lines, Evergreen Line and Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL) – will share their capacity on several routes, together operating 40 services on the East-West trades with around 100 ports of call and almost 500 port pairs on its co-called ‘Day One’ network.
