The DAY 8 Product, which is expected to commence in April, will include:

The deployment of 321 container ships, including 119 vessels for the CMA CGM Group

A total capacity of approximately 4.5 million TEUs

The OCEAN Alliance DAY 8 Product will offer the following services from/to Asia:

6 services between Asia and Northern Europe

4 services between Asia and the Mediterranean

20 Transpacific services - 8 between Asia and the East Coast of the United States and 12 services between Asia and the West Coast of the United States and Canada

At the same time, the OCEAN Alliance will suspend its two services connecting Asia to the Red Sea until further notice due to the unstable environment in the region.
