The new P3 alliance will result in massive cascading of ships from the Asia-Europe route to other services as the alliance replaces smaller ships with large ships, according to a new analysis from SeaIntel.

"The formation of the P3 carriers' new Asia-Europe network will affect the other trades, as they need to cascade some of the vessels to other trades. The question is how they will do it.
