Ocean Network Express new Transpacific Service to start in February 2025

On 28 March 2024 Ocean Network Express (ONE) announced its new Transpacific service is due to start in February 2025.

In alignment with the company’s established planning cycle for the shipment year, services are usually unveiled in the fourth quarter.

However, many Transpacific customers possess contracts extending beyond February 2025. So the 2025 Transpacific product overview has been produced.

The Transpacific product consists of 16 main services:

Eight covering the Asia-US West Coast South route, including Pacific South and an Asia Hawaii Express service;

Three Asia Pacific services, operating from Asia to the US West Coast North, made up of three Pacific North services with calls at Singapore, Yantian, Vancouver, Tacoma, Tokyo and Shanghai

Five Asia to US East Coast routes, operating from Kaohsiung, Yantian, Shanghai and Ningbo and linking New York, Savannah and Balboa, as well as a West India-North America service.

Following the long-term partnership with HMM and YML within THEA scope on the Pacific, and the addition of the already announced ONE independent WIN and AP1 services from April 2024, ONE will deploy 16 core weekly services on the Trans-Pacific trade from February 2025.

The emphasis will be on end-to-end direct services with high schedule reliability. The core products will include sufficient sea speed buffers and are designed so that the impact of Hapag’s departure in 2025 will have a minimal impact on ONE’s network and customers.
