Americans concerned about G6 independence

Like the P3 alliance partners experienced in December, the Federal Maritime Commission, now requests further information from the G6 alliance partners, which plans to expand their network. The FMC is worried about the carriers' independence.

The US Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) has stopped the clock, as the FMC Chairman says it in a statement, in order to request further information from the G6 alliance, which wants to expand its network cooperation on routes to and from the United States.

FMC member Richard A. Lindsky, Jr. threw the deciding vote requesting that all the carriers in the G6 alliance will now have to provide further information about the expanded cooperation. The same thing happened for the partners in the P3 alliance, Maersk Line, MSC, and CMA CGM, when the carriers in December were requested to answer new questions related to the size and consequences of the three carriers' collaboration. This resulted in a postponement of the entire process, so that Maersk Line now expects to launch P3 by the end of the second quarter this year.
