SeaIntel: The CKYHE alliance could become even bigger

The new alliance formed with Evergreen's entry into the CKYH alliance could become even bigger, says SeaIntel. Two carriers represent obvious candidates, which leaves Zim as the only operator on Asia-Europe without any alliance partners.

Several carriers could be on the way to joining the former CKYH alliance, which was expanded last week to cover Taiwanese Evergreen, according to an analysis by SeaIntel that points to two obvious container carriers, namely China Shipping Container Lines (CSCL) and United Arab Shipping Company (UASC).

In addition to Evergreen, the alliance currently consists of K-Line, Yang Ming, Hanjin, and Cosco. Last week Cosco and CSCL announced an increased collaboration agreement, and on this occasion SeaIntel CEO and partner Lars Jensen estimated that this move could split the CKYH alliance. But after Evergreen announced that the carrier has joined the alliance, this scenario no longer seems likely. Rather, it seems more likely that CSCL is headed toward joining the alliance.
