It will also provide additional information that will help regularly monitor the maritime service market.
The audit objects of FMC include the top nine container companies: Maersk,Mediterranean Shipping Company S.A, COSCO,CMA-CGM,EVA,Hapag-Lioyd,ONE, HMM and Yangming Marine.Among the top ten shipping companies, only ZIM was spared.
