Abstract: Co-operative arrangements have been present in the liner shipping industry for over a hundred years. In the modern era, the advent of container shipping facilitated globalisation resulting in competition and demand to be greater than ever. Liner shipping companies are compelled to provide more services in more market areas and with larger capacities. This has led to record levels of consolidation as liner shipping companies become more active in collaborations with fellow players in a bid to meet customers’ demands and gain a competitive edge. The objective of this research project is to investigate how liner companies have grown out of their local origin and expand globally, particularly through alliances and mergers and acquisitions.
