Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) and ZIM, the two top-10 carriers that showed the most growth in 2022, have again this year added the most extra slots to their fleets, reports Global Maritime Hub.
In the first half of this year, MSC has once again outperformed all other top-10 carriers by increasing its nominal fleet capacity by another 560,200 teu (+12.2%).
Percentagewise, only ZIM grew faster (+13.3%) in an increasing challenging market for the liner operators.
By comparison, the total cellular fleet has witnessed growth of just 3.5% in the first six months of 2023. Alphaliner’s latest top 10 still shows the same rankings as at the beginning of 2023, but the fleet evolution of the individual carriers is clearly very different.
