The members of THE Alliance (Hapag-Lloyd, “K”Line, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, NYK, and Yang Ming) have announced an enhancement of their future Mediterranean-North America East Coast offering.

The port rotation of the AL 6 service will be streamlined and the Spanish ports of Barcelona, Tarragona, Valencia and Algeciras will be served through a new cooperation with ZIM Line on the latter’s existing Mediterranean-North America loop. This additional service will be branded as the AL 7. The Italian ports of Salerno, Livorno, La Spezia, Genoa as well as FOS in France will remain part of the AL 6 service as previously announced.

By differentiating the port coverage within the Mediterranean the members of THE Alliance aim to offer their customer’s superior transit times between the two important regions US/Canada and Mediterranean.

The new port rotation of the AL 6 service will be as follows:
Salerno, Livorno, La Spezia, Genoa, FOS, Halifax, New York, Norfolk, Savannah, Salerno

The port coverage of the AL 7 service will be as follows:
Barcelona, Tarragona, Valencia, Algeciras, Halifax, New York, Norfolk, Savannah, Valencia, Tarragona, Barcelona
