MSC announce 2M alliance with Maersk to end in January 2025


The 2M alliance was introduced in 2015 when the ocean carrier industry needed an injection of stability. However, MSC announced this month that the alliance will come to an end, effective as of January 2025.

MSC CEO Soren Toft commented, “MSC is grateful for the operational cooperation with Maersk over the past eight years and expects the concept of ocean liner vessel-sharing to remain relevant and beneficial to carriers and their customers. Over the past eight years, the 2M alliance played a key role in supporting the container shipping industry. We continue to strengthen and modernize our fleet at MSC today, providing us with the scale we need for the market’s most comprehensive ocean and short-sea shipping network. In addition, we remain focused on delivering high-quality, personal service to a wide range of clients as we continue to develop cargo-carrying solutions on the oceans and beyond.”

As a liner industry leader with the largest fleet, order book and network coverage, MSC will continue to respond to client demand from across the market through a growing portfolio of shipping, inland, logistics and digital solutions, as well as its emerging air cargo offering.
