It said there would be no changes to the ports of call, schedules and slots arrangement as a result of the takeover.
CSL said the companies would not consolidate their information systems — both based on OOCL’s Integrated Regional Information System — although the Hong Kong-based carrier is running with a higher version.
Also, both liners would continue to honour their current contracts, while OOCL would “not consider replacing shipping agencies for the time being”.
In addition, the duo would keep using their own container fleets with no changes to the appearance.
Cosco Shipping Holdings, the Shanghai- and Hong Kong-listed parent of CSL, closed the offer to acquire OOCL’s Hong Kong-listed parent OOIL on July 27.
