Carriers terminate Asia-Oceania loop

Ocean carrier ANL will terminate its current KIX service between Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand that it jointly operates with CMA CGM and Hanjin in November.

   Ocean carrier ANL will terminate its current KIX service between Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand in conjunction with joining the NZS loop, dubbing it the new KIX, which operates within the same trades.
   The current KIX will terminate with the Nov. 9 sailing from Singapore. The service has a rotation of Singapore, Port Kelang, Brisbane, Sydney, Auckland, Tauranga, Brisbane and Singapore.
   The KIX operates with six vessels with an average capacity of 2,843 TEUs, according to ocean carrier schedule and capacity database BlueWater Reporting. ANL provides four of the six vessels, while CMA CGM and Hanjin each provide one. COSCO, NYK and CMA CGM’s subsidiary lines Delmas and U.S. Lines purchase slots on the loop.
   Meanwhile, ANL will join the joint NZS service operated by PIL, APL, MOL, NYK and OOCL with the Nov. 16 sailing of the Sri Lanka from Port Kelang.
   As of now, it is not clear if other carriers from the current KIX will also join the NZS, which has a port rotation of Port Kelang, Singapore, Brisbane, Auckland, Lyttelton, Wellington, Napier, Tauranga and Port Kelang.
   The loop operates with six vessels with an average capacity of 4,300 TEUs, according to BlueWater Reporting. PIL provides two vessels, while APL, MOL, NYK and OOCL each provide one vessel on the NZS.
   Effective with the Nov. 23 sailing of the Kota Lestari from Port Kelang, the NZS will also add a northbound Brisbane call after Tauranga, according to APL.
   MOL’s schedule does not show it continuing on the loop after the Nov. 16 sailing. According to industry analyst Dynaliner, ANL will be taking MOL’s place as a vessel provider on the NZS.
   Overall, a total of 26 carriers deploy 497,644 TEUs each week on 27 container shipping services from Asia to Oceania, as illustrated by BlueWater Reporting’s Carrier Trade Route Deployment Report and Capacity Report.
