This report aims to analyze the influence of the so called “alliances” of container shipping companies, at global level, and their related impacts on the Italian port system and in particular on the maritime economy of the Mezzogiorno. In specific, the study will consider the full container liner services that have called the Italian ports before the entry into the scene of the two main alliances 2M and O3, on the global maritime market, and will be compared with the new services that are active from February 2015.
