Five lines are joining the Digital Container Shipping Association giving the group that aims pave the way for digitalisation and standardisation of box shipping some 70% of the market as members.

CMA CGM, Evergreen, Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM), Yang Ming and ZIM, are joining AP Moller-Maersk, Hapag-Lloyd, MSC, and Ocean Network Ocean (ONE) in the association.

CMA CGM is joining as what is described as a founding member of DCSA and will be a member of the supervisory board while the other four lines will join as members. The nine members will represent 70% of the container shipping market, pending regulatory approval.

“It is critical to our success that standards developed will be implemented, and the commitment and engagement of many container shipping lines is therefore crucial,” said Thomas Bagge, ceo of DCSA.
