Ocean Alliance expanding operations

     Ultra large container ship

The launching of several ultra-large container ships in early 2018 by Ocean Alliance Lines will allow the container ship operator to introduce new products and services later this year.  Ocean Alliance is one of three global alliances that now dominate east-west container trades.  Its member companies include CMA, CGM, Cosco Shipping, Evergreen and OOCL.

Industry reports indicate Ocean Alliance’s offerings in 2018 will include 340 boxships, with a total capacity of 3.6 million TEU on 41 services, plus expanded coverage of the U.S. east coast.

The other two global alliances, 2M and THE Alliance, are also expanding.  Overall, 108 ultra-large container ships will come into service this year with a total capacity in excess of 14,000 TEU.
