The CMA CGM Group, COSCO Shipping, Evergreen and OOCL have launched the OCEAN Alliance “DAY 8 Product”, starting in April 2024.

The launch of this “DAY 8 Product” comes a few days after the leaders of the CMA CGM Group, COSCO SHIPPING, Evergreen, and OOCL, announced the extension of the OCEAN Alliance for another five years until 2032.

COSCO and partners extend OCEAN Alliance for five years

Due to the unstable situation in the Red Sea, ships must be routed through the Cape of Good Hope, disrupting supply chains. CMA CGM and its partners are stepping up coordination and adapting the rotations of the DAY 8 Product.

The offer for the eighth consecutive year will include:

  • The deployment of 321 container ships, including 119 vessels for the CMA CGM Group, continues to play a significant role in the alliance.
  • 35 services on the world’s most important trades.
  • A total capacity of approximately 4.5 million TEUs (Twenty Foot Equivalent).

The OCEAN Alliance “DAY 8 Product” will offer a set of solutions to transport their goods, in particular to and from Asia, including:

  • 6 services between Asia and Northern Europe.
  • 4 services between Asia and the Mediterranean.
  • 20 transpacific services:
  • 8 services between Asia and the East Coast of the United States.
  • 12 services between Asia and the west coast of the United States and Canada.
  • 2 transatlantic services connecting Northern Europe to North American ports.
  • 3 services between Asia and the ports of the Persian Gulf.
  • The 2 services connecting Asia to the Red Sea are suspended until further notice.

CMA CGM to suspend its calls at Port au Prince

Given the worsening security situation prevailing in Port au Prince city, Haiti, CMA CGM has decided to only call at the Lafito terminal until further notice. Therefore, CMA CGM will accept bookings only to the Lafito terminal for the time being. Port Lafito remains an effective alternative for shipments to and from Haiti. Located 20km from Port au Prince, Lafito remains served by the CMA CGM’s weekly service CAGEMA 2, operated with CMA CGM-owned vessels.

For the northern part of Haiti, CMA CGM will continue calling at Cap Haitien as usual.
