Beginning April 2017, we will be seeing entirely restructured vessel sharing alliances. Please see the below for clarification.
Ocean Alliance- CMA, CGM (includes acquisition of APL), COSCO Shipping, Evergreen Line and OOCL
THE Alliance: MOL, NYK Line, and ’K’ Line, Hapag Lloyd and Yang Ming
2M Alliance – Maersk and MSC
These new alliances will bring change to the current shipping environment. Please note, we are anticipating current sailing schedules, space, and vessel availability to be skewed throughout the next few months as the carriers work out their respective vessel sharing agreements. This may lead to shipping delays as well as equipment shortages and transit time variations. We will keep our customers well informed of any issues stemming from the initial phase of the new carrier alliances.
