After months of transformation in the form of mergers and acquisitions, eleven of the world’s largest container shipping lines have come together into three new alliances – The Ocean Alliance, 2M and The Alliance. These new alliances have set sail on 1st April.
Malta Freeport Terminals (MFT) is proud to have roped in the Ocean Alliance (CMA-CGM, Evergreen, OOCL and COSCO Shipping) and has recently received its first calls. This is a significant accomplishment for MFT which clearly attests that the Freeport’s facilities offer carriers the required infrastructure and equipment to operate the largest vessels. Moreover 2M Alliance (Maersk and MSC) has sustained its calls at MFT.
The Ocean Alliance is strengthening Malta Freeport’s connectivity which presently offers regular connections with 115 port worldwide, around 60 of which are in the Mediterranean and Black Sea.
The below are the new mainline services operated by the Ocean Alliance at Malta Freeport.
