CKYHE Alliance

The CKYHE Alliance consists of Cosco Container Lines, "K" Line, Yang Ming Line, Hanjin Shipping, and Evergreen Line. The CKYHE Alliance will cease to operate in 2017 as a result of consolidation in the container shipping industry. Evergreen Line will join the Ocean Alliance along with Cosco, which merged with China Shipping Container Lines in 2015, while "K" Line, Yang Ming Line, and Hanjin are joining THE Alliance.
