Alliances and container shipping

Support our research project, register yourself and purchase the report

Global alliances have become a dominant feature of container shipping. They are cooperation agreements between container lines (carriers) on operational matters. Alliances usually consist of a series of agreements with global coverage on sharing vessels and slots on these vessels. The aim of such alliances is to achieve economies of scale and wider service coverage.
Whereas the early generations of global alliances that emerged in the mid-1990s pro-vided a vehicle for cooperation between smaller carriers, alliances are nowadays co-operation tools for the largest container lines: the three global alliances (2M, Ocean and THE Alliance) that are operational since April 2017 regroup the eight largest con-tainer carriers of the world.

This issue of SRM’s Maritime Report analyses the new future challenges for the Mediterranean in the field of ports and shipping. New economic and maritime scenarios are currently being defined which will affect the competitiveness of our country’s system and shape global routes and infrastructure. In particular, transits through the Suez Canal, celebrating 150 years of operations, have been following dramatic upward trends for the past year. Secondly, the phenomenon of naval gigantism which continues to grow causing a sharp rise in the process of port selection. Due consideration is also given to China which has firmly established its strategic positioning in some of the most important port terminals of the Mediterranean. Finally, the role of Free Zones in ports which are continuing to attract industrial investment on the African bank, alongside the challenges set by new technologies and energy scenarios. Will we be able to win these challenges and turn them into opportunities?
