Into the shipping storm: facing new and coming realities in the Americas

Global shipping industry consolidation and alliances will prompt a major shake-up in Latin American service structures in 2018-19. Container terminals across the region now need to develop a more nuanced approach to value, pricing and utilisation, argues Michael Kaasner Kristiansen in this guest editorial ahead of TOC Americas 2017

Container shipping industry consolidation has continued in recent months with Cosco’s proposed USD 6.3 billion acquisition of OOCL. There seems only one major hurdle left for Maersk Line to acquire Hamburg Süd - regulatory approval from Brazil, where both lines command significant reefer market share. The recent deal for CMA to buy Brazil-flagged Mercosul Line from Maersk is intended to help with this. If we fast-forward to final integration of Japan’s Ocean Network Express (ONE), that brings the number down of container carriers with a global market share of 1% or more down to just 12.
