SeaIntel: Will the CKYHE expansion outcompete G6

The CKYHE alliance has applied for permission from the US Federal Maritime Commission, FMC, to expand on the Pacific. If this request is approved, CKYHE and G6 will have the same advantages, and will there be room for both, asks SeaIntel.

The battle between the three major container alliances is picking up speed. The alliance of Asian carriers CKYH - and soon E as well, as Taiwanese Evergreen wants to broaden its reach - has recently applied for permission from the US Federal Maritime Commission, FMC, to expand its network.

Cosco, K Line, Yang Ming and Hanjin want to expand their network, from primarily covering Asia - Europe to also including the Pacific and Transatlantic routes, which means the alliance will focus its operations even more on the major East-West trade lanes, except from the Pacific to the US East Coast, where neither Evergreen nor CKYH are active today.
