After agreeing to expand the successful G6 Alliance to the transpacific trade earlier this year, the six member lines announced the port rotations of their new service portfolio.

The new expanded cooperation will start in May with six coordinated services in the Asia-to-North America east coast trade. It will deploy more than 50 vessels with capacities between 4,500 and 8,000teu to connect about 30 ports. Three of the services will transit the Suez Canal while the other three loops will sail via Panama.
