COSCO has yet to join the organization that seeks to enable digital standardization.
Five additional shipping companies — CMA CGM, Evergreen, Hyundai Merchant Marine, Yang Ming and ZIM — have joined the Digital Container Shipping Association.
Maersk, Hapag-Lloyd, MSC and Ocean Network Express already belong to the group, which says its purpose is to enable digital standardization in the container shipping industry.
With nine of the largest container shipping lines in the world, the association says it now “represents a substantial part of the industry.”
