Unifeeder keeps up with the big Baltic players

Unifeeder offers the largest number of services among all the carriers operating on the feeder route from Northern Europe to the Baltic region, but the market could come under further pressure if carriers such as Cosco establish their own services, says SeaIntel in an analysis.

Even though the major oceangoing carriers have increased their own feeder services in the Baltic Sea, Danish-based Unifeeder continues to dominate the feeder market from Northern Europe to the Baltic region.

But the market could become further intensified if the three Asian Top 20 carriers Cosco, China Shipping Container Lines, and Taiwanese Yang Ming - which recently entered the Baltic feeder market - choose to establish their own dedicated feeder services, just as it would be natural for the new and bigger alliances, such as the P3 alliance with Maersk Line, MSC and CMA GM, to deploy bigger ships once depth and terminals make this possible.
