SeaIntel: 2M could lead to four major alliances

MSC and Maersk Line's decision to enter the new 2M Vessel Sharing Agreement means that new alliances could be born, says SeaIntel in a new analysis.


The three former alliances could become four new alliances after the new 2M VSA - Vessel Sharing Agreement - was settled between MSC and Maersk Line last week, says SeaIntel in its weekly analysis of the container market.

In addition to 2M and the existing G6 and CKYHE, a new alliance could be formed with the scorned party of the abandoned P3 alliance, CMA CGM, along with Chinese CSCL and UASC, according to SeaIntel.
