Infographic: World’s Container Shipping Alliances

The infographic below, published by Oslo-based benchmarking and market intelligence platform for containerized ocean freight Xeneta, shows current shipping alliances as well as upcoming alliance reorganizations.

As of 18 July 2016, the world’s shipping alliances include the 2M alliance (Maersk and MSC), the Ocean Three alliance (CMA CGM, UASC, COSCO Shipping), the G6 alliance (NYK Line, OOCL, APL, MOL, Hapag-Lloyd* and HMM) and the CKYHE alliance (K Line, COSCO, HANJIN, Evergreen, Yang Ming).

Independent top carriers include PIL, ZIM, Wan Hai Lines, X-Press Feeders and KMTC.

Four alliances including the 2M, the Ocean Alliance, The Alliance and the independent carriers announced reorganizations starting from January next year, according to Xeneta.

In addition, HMM will soon join Maersk and MSC in the 2M alliance.
