THE IMPACT OF THE CONCENTRATION RATE OF THE INTERNATIONAL CONTAINER LINER MARKET ON CHINESE CONTAINER FREIGHT INDEX

Cui Li, Zhou Yong Sheng, He Mingke

Abstract

At the beginning of the 21st century, a wave of company merging was stirred up in the global container liner market. The relationship between market concentration and China container freight index (CCFI) was analyzed through economic theory from the year 2000 to 2005 when container liner freighting industry reached the high point of the merging wave. It was found that the increasing market share of the top 20 shippers did not affect CCFI to some extent. But the high degree of monopoly had impaired the fairness of shipping market and also affected the free competition of Chinese shipping market. Some policy suggestions were given to deal with the potential mergers.
