Press release from: MOL

/ PR Agency: Image Line Communications Ltd
The New World Alliance (TNWA) carriers - APL, Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM) and Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL)– today announced their winter capacity plans for the Transpacific trade.

In the face of an unprecedented rise in operating costs – particularly for fuel –the TNWA has made the prudent business decision to withdraw more capacity and earlier than in previous years.

In addition to an immediate winter reduction of around 10%, the TNWA will from early December also withdraw a further 5 to 10% of its joint capacity in the Transpacific. The withdrawal may also run longer than in past years, according to the TNWA.

TNWA anticipates that it will have plenty of capacity to meet demand for cargo transportation services in the Transpacific during this winter season. Service will continue to be provided at all existing port locations. The carriers did not rule out future additional network adjustments in order to minimize the impact of dramatically higher costs on their respective businesses.

The TNWA carriers remain committed to providing customers with premium global container shipping services
