Much has been made of the effect falling commodity & consumer demand has had on industry and retail. What of the companies whose job it is to transport the goods these businesses sell & use? This report looks at the difficulties falling commodity and consumer demand has had on Maersk Line, and how Maersk has become a victim of its own success amid a capacity glut, and its response, the P3 Network.

Features and benefits

* Looks at the travails of the shipping industry, analyzing the dry bulk cargo index, Baltic Dry Index (BDI), and container shipping index the HARPEX.
* Looks Maersk Line's fleet of new vessels, the Triple-E, and how they will effect the shipping industry and its capacity glut.
* Analyzes the capacity glut, and Maersk Line's response through the creation of the P3 Network, looking at what impact this alliance will have.


New vessels ordered during a boom period, when demand outstripped supply, were delivered during the financial crisis. The perfect storm of increased capacity and a fall in demand created a major capacity glut. The P3 Network aims to address this by decreasing the number of vessels but increasing capacity, thus creating improved economies of scale.
The P3 Network will see a decrease in the number of vessels on the relevant routes, yet increased capacity resulting in improved economies of scale. At the same time CO2 emissions will be reduced, and further cost savings found through improved fuel efficiency. Yet, each member is still able to compete with one another for each and every container.
