The Hong Kong Competition Commission retained NOCON to provide advice on the design of commitments in its investigation of the Hong Kong Seaport Alliance. The commitments, which include a cap on gateway cargo handling charges, have been accepted by the Competition Commission following an investigation into whether the alliance contravenes competition law. The Commission had been concerned that the alliance could result in price rises or decreases in service levels in the gateway market, as well as withholding overflow services from DP World, the only terminal operator at Kwai Tsing that is not part of the alliance. The final commitments were published on 30 October 2020.
