THE Alliance carriers (Hapag-Lloyd, HMM, ONE and Yang Ming) will divert a total of 17 Panama transits to the Suez on 3 of its FE-USEC services from December 2023. The diversions will affect 3 northbound and 5 southbound sailings on the EC1, 3 northbound and 4 southbound sailings on the EC2 and 1 sailing in each direction on the EC6 over December 2023 and January 2024, with further extensions dependent on the Panama drought conditions. These diversions will add about 1 week to the total transit
