New giant ships for the P3 alliance?

The P3 alliance's three partners are currently in the midst of applying to the US Federal Maritime Commission for permission to sail containers to and from the North American continent. The plans to insert 19,200 teu ships on the US-bound routes are allegedly included in this application, according to Lloyd's List.
