ESC members are welcome to join the ESC internal Maritime Transport Council meeting in Brussels on the 29th of November. As the ESC Maritime Day in Genoa will not take place, we are happy that Stephan SIMON, Olaf MERK, and Thomas JENSEN will join our discussion. Stephan Simon, representing the European Commission, will explain how the Commission deals with companies that express the will to merge, acquire and /or form alliances. Olaf Merk, from the International Transport Forum will shed light on the potential impact of Alliances, mega-vessels , etc on the supply chain. Thomas Jensen will show the measures taken by Maersk and IBM that will lead to a more transparent and better performing maritime supply chain.
