The G6 alliance members (Hapag-Lloyd, NYK, OOCL, APL, MOL, and HMM) will receive an im- portant number of new buildings to be delivered in the coming weeks. The new buildings will be used to increase capacities on the alliance’s Far East to Europe service loops. While three of the 5 services will be affected, two will stay unchanged:

Loop1, average weekly capacity 8,800 TEU, and Loop4, average weekly capacity of 12,100 TEU, will stay unchanged.

Loop5: the two vessels HYUNDAI DREAM and HYUNDAI HOPE, which were originally scheduled to be deployed on Loop7, will now be deployed in Loop5. The average weekly capacity is 13,000 TEU.

Loop6: The weekly service capacity is scheduled to gradually increase from 8,400 TEU, as of Feb- ruary, to 9,000TEU until March. Hapag-Lloyd will phase in its three vessels LEVERKUSEN EX- PRESS, LUDWIGSHAFEN EXPRESS and ULSAN EXPRESS over the course of March and April. Additionally, OOCL KOREA is planned to phase in on April 14th.

Loop7: Over the next three months, four vessels are projected to phase in, namely APL MERLION, APL SENTOSA, MOL QUASAR, and MOL QUINTET. As a result, the weekly capacity will be in- creased from 11,600 TEU to 12,600 TEU by mid-March.
