Calling for liner alliances to shoulder losses and ensure shipments reach their destinations even in the event of a member going under.
''It is so important that another Hanjin debacle does not happen again. Companies may fail, but the responsibility lies with everyone, at least to the extent that we do not have the damage that occurred post Hanjin,'' Doyle said.
When Hanjin sought court protection on August 31 last year, more than $14bn of cargo was left stranded on Hanjin's 100 plus strong fleet, sending global supply chains into chaos.
Doyle said: ''I firmly believe that if a carrier joins an alliance, it is the responsibility of the alliance members to ensure the cargo gets to where it needs to go.''
Doyle praised THE Alliance, a new container grouping, for its contingency fund which it has created to be prepared in the event that any of its members run into financial difficulty.
