SeaIntel: Sulphur regulations will not change container services

Many people have been wondering whether the new sulphur regulations would make carriers restructure and change their services, dividing them into a higher number of smaller routes. But this will not be the case, says SeaIntel.

In a new analysis, SeaIntel poses the question of whether the coming sulphur regulations will change the carriers' service networks.

"In the past few weeks, we have increasingly heard market speculation as to whether the high cost of low Sulphur fuel might result in carriers shortening their routes into North Europe and replacing them with smaller transshipment services. At first glance, the argument does have merit," says SeaIntel.
