Carrier Alliance Line Up For 2025

 

Some steamship lines have been on the move during recent weeks, as the carrier alliance pack starts to get reshuffled ahead of next year.

It seemed inevitable that there would be further changes to the current alliance structure as soon as Maersk and MSC announced that they would be splitting from their exclusive arrangement in the 2M alliance last year.

It was understood that both carriers would be operating independently until Maersk announced last month that they would be working with Hapag Lloyd in the new Gemini Cooperation, meaning that the latter would be leaving THE Alliance (THEA).

This week, one of the remaining THEA carriers – Ocean Network Express (ONE) has announced a joint service with Taiwanese carrier Wan HAI Lines, which has added to recent suggestions in The Loadstar that Wan Hai may be set to enter the Asia-Europe trade by taking Hapag Lloyd’s place in THEA.

As things stand right now, the carrier alliance set up for 2025 looks something like this:

Independent – MSC.
Gemini Cooperation – Maersk, Hapag Lloyd.
The Ocean Alliance –  CMA CGM, OOCL, Cosco, Evergreen.
THE AllianceONE, Yang Ming, HMM. 

This is unlikely to be the end of the story and we suspect there may be a surprise or two to come. The team at Atlantic Pacific are watching the situation develop with great interest.
