Several container carriers will expand their services in the time to come, which will, to various extent, increase the total capacity between different regions, one reason being the introduction of bigger ships.

Chinese Cosco and Hong Kong-based OOCL will upgrade their current service between Asia and the Middle East, from the current ships operating there, at an average of 8,250 teu, to bigger ships for an average of 9,750 teu. The rotation will be the same, but the capacity will go up by 1,500 teu per week, a development that, according to SeaIntel's Sunday Spotlight corresponds to a total capacity increase of two percent.
