Up until recently there were two direct competing service options from from North Asia to NZ, namely the COSCo / NYK / MOL Maersk partnership and the Hamburg / Hapag / TOL partnership. They have now amalgamated into one service resulting in an approximate 30% market reduction in available capacity. In addition, as the new service will call via Brisbane en-route to NZ, the overall transit time will now be 2 days longer in most cases. Taiwan & Nagoya have been dropped as direct port calls. All cargo will now move via Honh Kong or Singapore. Port Chalmers is no longer a direct port call.
