After the Am17. A.P. – M`rsk A/S (Maersk Line) has pursued new ways to improve the efficiency and profitability of the network. Today, Maersk Line has entered into a long-term vessel-sharing agreement (10 years) (VSA) with the MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company S.A. on Asia-Europe, transatlantic and trans-Pacific trade. Zim President and General Manager Eli Glickman said the new deal with 2M would see Zim`s four ships and three 2M ships operate on the TP9/Maple loop in Seattle and Vancouver, and slots on the TP8/Orient channel in Prince Rupert, as well as access to slots on Maersk and MSC`s Asia-Mediterranean services. Hello Dang, in a VSA, you usually do NOT receive two vsls on the same service that calls the same port at the same time. However, in some cases, this is possible due to the absence of ships and delays in a given port. If such a case occurs, the berth is ordered according to the port.
The last agreement that started this year is the one between Maersk Line and MSC. They concluded the agreement with another number of ships, Maersk with about 110 and MSC with 75. Called the Vessel Sharing Agreement (VSA), the purpose of the contract is to continue the joint operation of a regular weekly shipping line for international shipping of containers between the east coast of South America and the Gulf of Mexico and the United States. The instrument also provides for the sharing of container space on each company`s ships. The 2M and Zim alliance are expected to extend their cooperation to services ranging from Asia to the west coast of the United States and the Mediterranean, which the Israeli airline has described as a “game change agreement. It is not necessary for each partner to have the same number of vessels. The space available for loading and unloading at each port of call is shared by the partners. He added that the agreement would bring “reciprocal benefits to both parties,” with maersk Line achieving “operational efficiencies” through the new cooperation, which is expected to begin in March after approval by regulators. As a general rule, a vessel-sharing agreement is concluded between different container shipping companies that agree to operate a regular service on a given line with a number of vessels. It is not necessary for each partner to have an equal number of vessels. A.P. Méller – M`rsk A/S – Long-term ship-sharing agreement with MSC COPENHAGEN (Reuters) – The world`s two largest container loaders, Maersk Line and MSC Mediterranean Shipping Co, have reached a new ship-sharing agreement following China`s cancellation of a previous three-way pooling agreement called P3.
