The CKYH and G6 alliances will have to pull out their wallets if they want to take on the new P3 Alliance, which in addition to Maersk Line includes French CMA CGM and Swiss MSC, as the P3 Alliance ships will be be significantly bigger on average than the two other alliances' ships, writes SeaIntel in its weekly analysis, the Sunday Spotlight.

"If the G6 and the CKYH alliances want to limit the scale advantage the P3 Alliance is going to have in the future, the only possibility is that they order new ULVCs (Ultra Large Container Vessels) so they can replace their smaller vessels in the trade," writes SeaIntel.
