The container industry should no longer receive special block exemption under the EU competition laws, says the Global Shippers Forum (GSF), which represents the industry and major international companies such as the supermarkets Walmart and Tesco.
In a response to the EU-Commission the organization calls for a lift of the so-called Consortia Block Exemption Regulation, which since 2010 has exempted container carriers from the EU's general rules concerning competition distorting agreements. And since the exemption is set to expire on April 25th 2015, it should not be extended, says the GSF in its response to the Commission.
