Those idle cranes in the Port of Oakland's Outer Harbor stand as mute testimony to the changes that are roiling container ports and terminals today. Chief among them are the ever-shifting alliances and mergers among the top 20 container lines. Recent weeks have seen efforts to combine two Chinese carriers, China Ocean Shipping Co. (Cosco) and China Shipping Group Co. France’s CMA CGM SA announced the acquisition of Neptune Orient Lines, Ltd. (NOL), parent company of APL. Meanwhile, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd.; Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK Line); Hanjin Shipping Co.; Hapag-Lloyd AG and Yang Ming Marine Transport Corp. have disclosed plans to form a new space-sharing partnership known provocatively as THE Alliance, operating in all east-west trade lanes. They’ll be vying for cargo with two other big agreements, the 2M Alliance and the Ocean Alliance.

Preparing For The Tipping Point

Navis’s new president and head of software at Kalmar expects the industry to see more change in the next three years than it has in the last 20. Since he became Navis president and head of software at Kalmar on 1 February, Benoît de la Tour has been meeting with Navis customers, shipping lines and industry representatives to get to know the industry, and how it uses software. With an extensive background in enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, the first thing that struck him is the similarity between where the shipping industry is today and the ERP software market was 20 years ago.
