CGM CMA, Hapag-Lloyd and Hamburg-Sued in new joint service

From The Journal of Commerce (click here for link)

CMA CGM, Hapag-Lloyd and Hamburg Sud will reduce vessel capacity by combining two of their liner services in August into a new direct service between the East Coast of South America and North Europe.
Hamburg Sud will operate the six 5,900-TEU vessels deployed on Sling 1.

Sling 2 will deploy six 2,800-TEU vessels of which four will be operated by CMA CGM and its partner Maruba and two by Hapag-Lloyd.

I don't know how much capacity each carrier had before, but Hamburg Süd is definitely providing the most in this new scenario.

Of course, this is Hamburg Süd's biggest trade lane, whereas the others operate more in the east-west trades.
