    Mike , u may remember the impact on rate levels
    when Maersk announced Emma Maersk(14500 teu) rates
    plummeted – so my guess is that this news will put
    a dagger in the hearts of some ‘financially’
    strapped carriers, who will fear a repeat of that.
    Maybe its Maersk’s final plan to eliminate
    ‘pesky’ competition, goodness knows rates are
    at subsistence level on many routes – thank
    goodness for low cost oil — at least
