According to BlueWater Reporting, MSC deploys more capacity on almost every route from the Mediterranean.
   Utilizing BlueWater Reporting's Carrier Trade Route Splits Report, the above chart displays the deployed capacity (TEUs) on each of the export trades from the Mediterranean to other regions, for liner carriers Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) and Maersk Line.  
   As of the end of Feb. 2018, MSC maintains the greatest deployed capacity on the Mediterranean to North Europe trade, deploying 43,881 TEUs. Maersk currently deploys the greatest capacity on the Mediterranean to Middle East trade with 20,543 TEUs.
   On the major East-West trades, MSC exports far more capacity than Maersk, deploying  30,171 TEUs on the Mediterranean to Asia trade, while Maersk deploys less than half, at just 14,190 TEUs. 
   On the Mediterranean to North America trade, MSC towers over Maersk Line with 19,244 TEUs to Maersk's 3,102 TEUs.
   According to the data, Maersk Line does not deploy any capacity in the Mediterranean to Oceania trade, while MSC deploys no capacity in the Mediterranean to South America west coast trade. 
  Overall, Maersk Line deploys a total of 75,585 TEUs from the Mediterranean to other regions, while MSC deploys nearly double the capacity with 136,848 TEUs.
