G6 green-lighted in USA

The US Federal Maritime Commission, FMC, has unanimously approved the major G6 container alliance's request to expand its network in response to the coming P3 collaboration.

The other major container alliance, G6 - which consists of APL, Hapag-Lloyd, Hyundai Merchant Marine, Mitsui OSK Lines, Nippon Yusen Kaisha, and Orient Overseas Container Line - has been cleared by US Federal Maritime Commission, FMC, to expand its cooperation, according to a statement from the FMC.

Following the approval of the P3 alliance, several industry observers have pointed to this as the likely outcome of the FMC's evaluation of the G6 alliance's request to expand its collaboration on all the major routes between Asia and the US West Coast and from Northern Europe to all US coasts. The decision means that the alliance could launch the expanded collaboration by as early as Friday, April 4th.
