WILL THERE BE NEW PRICING FOR CONTAINER LINES?

Assuming container line bankruptcies that can "stabilize" the market, will a new pricing mechanism arise that replaces contract (time-volume) rates? Is so, what will it be? Will it be value/performance/service based? Pricing varies by transit time & reliability per origin-destination? With max and min caps? Will it be tied to derivatives?
