Members of the G6 Alliance have announced the temporary suspension of their Central China (CC2) service between Asia and the U.S. West Coast.
Citing seasonal changes in market demand, APL, Hapag-Lloyd, Hyundai Merchant Marine, Mitsui O.S.K Lines, NYK and Orient Overseas Container Line will shut down the CC2 Service until further notice.
The last sailing will be OOCL Italy which departs Shanghai on October 31. All the ports called by CC2 will be covered by other G6 Alliance services.
According to a statement from Hapag-Lloyd, “The G6 Alliance will continue to offer a variety of services between Asia and U.S. West Coast covering all major port pairs with weekly sailings. The market environment will be closely monitored for the resumption of the CC2 service accordingly."
