Several of the world's biggest liner companies have published their third quarter results in recent weeks, and based on the published numbers, analyst firm Seaintelligence offers the following verdict: Pretty decent.

"Overall, with a combined EBIT (ONE Line: net loss) result of USD 541M across these 8 carriers, 2018-Q3 has been a pretty decent peak season, although it ranked 5th of 7 compared to the Q3 combined EBIT results for these 8 carriers in the 2012-2018 period, with only the Q3 periods of the horrendous years of 2015 and 2016 performing worse," writes Seaintelligence.
