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.
