The recently finalised port calls for THE Alliance’s new vessel sharing agreement has seen the London Gateway add two additional calls to its rotation.

Despite this, Northern Europe will still be dominated by Rotterdam with 18 calls and Zeebrugge and Wilhelmshaven also gained at the expense of Hamburg and Felixstowe.

Speaking to Port Strategy, Steve Wray, associate director of maritime and logistics at WSP Group, said: “Preliminary reports on schedules suggest no major change in port geographical coverage. The main winners are London Gateway and Singapore, with the main losers at the Port of Kelang, Hong Kong and Chiwan.”

Singapore continues to dominate the Asian port calls with an additional five calls at the expensive of the Port of Kelang, but Hong Kong, Chiwan and Cai Mep all had port call numbers reduced too.

While elsewhere, the USA saw positive increases in calls for Savannah, Miami, Mobile and Philadelphia, but that meant Charleston, Norfolk and New York all missed out on two each.

The vessel sharing agreement comes into force on 1 April, the member carriers of the THE Alliance consortium include Hapag Lloyd, “K” Line, MOL, NYK Line, and Yang Ming Line.
