On 20 April 2016, COSCO Container Lines Co., Ltd. signed a memorandum of understanding with CMA CGM S.A., Evergreen Marine Corp.

Subject to regulatory approvals of competent authorities, the alliance plans to begin operations in April 2017. The initial period of the alliance shall be five years.

The alliance will allow each of its members to bring significantly improved services to its respective customers. Shippers will have an attractive selection of frequent departures and direct calls to meet their supply chain needs, including access to a vast network with the number of sailings and port rotations connecting markets in Asia, Europe and the United States. The Alliance will also bring service reliability and the most efficient integration of the latest vessels in a fleet of over 350 containerships. Initially the deployment will cover more than 40 services globally mostly connected with Asia, including about 20 services each in the U.S. and Europe related trades. The alliance is a better match for the globalization strategy of COSCON.
