The article provides information on a paper published by the European Commission on the potential impact of data exchanges between liner carriers on competition. The paper is an interim step towards the abolition of the liner conference system. The European Liner Affairs Association has proposed replacing the present block exemption with a pro-competitive information exchange system, which would exclude any discussion on freight rates.
