Container carriers operate in an increasingly competitive and volatile market

Much has and will change in container shipping. Rapidly shifting trade patterns, subdued markets, customers professionalising freight procurement etc. is putting the traditional liner model under pressure.

To drive down costs carriers are responding with yet larger and more economic tonnage. Slow steaming is assisting to absorb overcapacity, at least partly, while reducing fuel expenses. Whilst necessary, these initiatives achieve little more than to maintain a level playing field. To get ahead the situation calls for innovation and transformation.
