On December 17th the competition authorities from the United States, China, and the EU will meet in Washington, DC, to discuss the announced massive P3 alliance between Maersk Line, MSC, and CMA CGM. During this fall several organizations, including the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC), have voiced concerns about the alliance, which is still awaiting approval, and some of these concerns will be discussed at the meeting, set just before Christmas, says the FMC in a press release.
Global regulations will be part of the agenda, while carrier alliances, vessel sharing agreements, as well as the effects of operational agreements on international trade will be discussed as well.
