There is one factor that is featured repeatedly in the concerned comments submitted to the US competition authority FMC, the Federal Maritime Commission, about the giant P3 alliance: its size. That is, whether the alliance between the world's three largest container carriers Maersk Line, MSC, and CMA CGM will be exploited to thwart competitors and put ports under pressure in terms of prices.
This becomes apparent when reviewing the comments submitted to the Federal Maritime Commission in Washington, which handles the application and the final approval or rejection of the collaboration for the United States. The concern is also featured in reactions from other regions in the world. Thus also from the Chinese shippers, referring to the Chinese manufacturers relying on the container carriers when transporting goods to the west.
