Alphaliner: Cracks in partnership between Maersk Line and MSC

While Maersk Line and the carrier's partner in the 2M alliance, MSC, have been in negotiations with Hyundai Merchant Marine to incorporate the South Korean carrier into the alliance so as to strengthen their network on the Pacific, the two carriers have also increased their total capacity on the Pacific routes in question.
