SeaIntel: G6 in tough response to the P3 alliance in the US

The shipping companies under G6 - which could soon become G7 - could develop into a serious competitor to the P3 alliance, says SeaIntel. G6 will be biggest on the routes between Asia and the US West Coast, as well as on Northern Europe and the US East Coast.

While all focus these months is aimed at the competition authorities' scrutiny of the announced P3 alliance between the world's three largest carriers, Maersk Line, MSC, and CMA CGM, scheduled for launch in the 2nd quarter 2014, the alliance's competitors are now starting to counter-act for real.

According to SeaIntel an expanded cooperation amongst the carriers in the G6 alliance - which includes APL, Hapag-Lloyd, Hyundai, Mitsui, Nippon Yusen, and OOCl, and perhaps also Israeli Zim - would give the alliance the biggest market share on the routes between Asia and the US West Coast and between Northern Europe and the US East Coast.
