The members of the G6 Alliance will modify their trade routes between the Far East and the Black Sea and eastern Mediterranean, starting in week 36.
The last sailing for the ABX service will be the MOL Performance, with an estimated time of arrival in Ningbo, China, on Aug. 30.
All port coverage will be maintained by a new dedicated feeder service with a connection via Port Said in Egypt, which will be added to the Loop 4 of the G6 Alliance. The G6 Mediterranean service, EUM, will also provide a connection to the newly deployed Black Sea feeder through the existing Port Said call.
The port rotation will be as follows: Port Said; Ashdod, Israel; Istanbul; Constanța, Romania; Odessa, Ukraine; Instanbul; Ashdod; and Port Said. The weekly service will provide coverage of the Black Sea with two vessels of about 3,000 20-foot-equivalent units each.
The G6 Alliance comprises APL, Hapag-Lloyd, Hyundai Merchant Marine, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, NYK Line and OOCL.
