MCC disturbed by large ships on intra-Asian routes

Large container ships being pulled from the long haul strings and inserted into the intra-Asia traffic is a reality. “The development is disturbing”, CEO of MCC says.

For a long time, analysts have warned it might happen. But it has already become a reality in the intra-Asian container market that the major container carriers have deployed their surplus tonnage considered too small for the major strings – but which are also too big for regional traffic.
