  • The consolidated FAL23 service will call on Cai Mep in Vietnam, Felixstowe, and Chiwan.
  • The Ocean Three route will employ 12 vessels with capacity in range of 12,000 to 15,000 TEUs.
  • The first voyage from the new Ocean Three Alliance service will start from Antwerp September 28.

Ocean Three Alliance partners, CMA CGM, CSCL, and UASH, announced the consolidation of two Asia-Europe routes, aiming to reduce capacity and to improve rates.

The Ocean Three Alliance have decided to harmonize FAL2 and FAL3 in order to adapt to the current market situation between Asia and Europe. They will offer a new optimized rotation.

Instead of two services, FAL2 and FAL3, a consolidated FAL23 service will be launched, adding the ports of call in Cai Mep Deep Sea Terminal in Vietnam, Felixstowe, in the UK, and Chiwan, China.

The route will employ 12 vessels with capacity in range of 12,000 to 15,000 TEUs. The first voyage from the new service will be made by CMA CGM La Perouse starting from Antwerp on September 28.

Beginning October 13t, when the port of Chiwan will be added to the rotation, the new route will operate as follows: Shanghai, Ningbo, Yantian, Cai Mep, Port Kelang, Le Havre, Rotterdam, Antwerp, Hamburg, Felixstowe, Rotterdam, Le Havre, Jeddah, Port Kelang, Chiwan, Shanghai.
