SINGAPORE's Neptune Orient Lines (NOL), parent company of G6 Alliance member APL, announced, together with other G6 Alliance members, that APL will fulfil its duties to the alliance throughout 2016.
That statement is made in light of the expected acquisition of NOL by CMA CGM, the leading member of the Ocean 3 alliance, which was expected to absorb APL, or at least its assets, after the completion of the take-over which first must win regulatory approval.
"Until there is further development, the G6 Alliance assures that its current service structure will remain stable, and expects to operate as aligned through 2016," said the joint statement.
Members of the G6 Alliance stay committed in offering reliable shipping services that meet the needs of customers. G6 members are APL, Hapag-Lloyd, Hyundai Merchant Marine, MOL. NYK and OOCL.
