A.P. Møller-Maersk’s plan to cut investments in its liner shipping business will have a minimal impact on Maersk’s market share in the next three years, according to Alphaliner’s analysis of the carrier’s planned capacity additions until 2015.
Maersk still intends to invest $6-8bn over the next five years in its container shipping business.
It is to take delivery of the 20 'Triple E' 18,000TEU class ultra-mega ships in 2013-2015.
Alphaliner said "The planned new capacity additions will provide Maersk with sufficient capacity to grow in line with the market and retain its position as the world’s leading liner shipping company."
Meanwhile, Alphaliner data shows Maersk has the largest orderbook currently, with newbuilding commitments of 449,000 TEU, split into 402,000 TEU of owned ships and 47,000 TEU of long term chartered tonnage.
