TOKYO, 17 Jan 2013 The G6 Alliance announced today that it will maintain the current  5-loop product structure for its Asia-North Europe service in  2013.

“We  anticipate the current supply and demand balance will continue and we will not  be reinstating the Loop 3 Asia-Europe service, ” members of the Alliance said in a joint  statement. The Loop 3 service was suspended in October 2012 as part of the Alliance’s  winter program.MOL

The G6  Alliance will continue offering a variety of services between the Far East and Europe covering all major port pairs with  weekly sailings.

In  addition, adjustments have been made to the Alliance’s other services to accommodate port calls from  the Loop 3 service to ensure that customers continue to enjoy the full network  coverage the Alliance provides.

For  example, the Alliance had in October started a feeder  shuttle between German ports and Gothenburg. A new call at Jeddah has also been  included in the Loop 4 service, as with a new call at Hong Kong in the Loop 7.

The G6  Alliance members are: Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, APL, Hapag-Lloyd, Hyundai Merchant  Marine, Nippon Yusen Kaisha and Orient Overseas Container  Line.
