New US Container Line

Would a new US Trans-Pacific Express Container Line help??:

Carrying US standard 53’ Containers and with own gear to operate independent of congested Container Terminals MAY help alleviate the problem on the US end, but how does 53* containers fit the existing infrastructure (Ports, Trucks, Railcars etc.) on the other end??

Suitable geared container vessels are already available, but they are relatively small compared to the mega ships that is used in this trade at the moment.

Geared Bulk Carriers can be used, but are they suitable for Containers?
Besides, they are slow for anything called an Express Service.

Geared container ships usually have one hatch lid designated for out of gauge containers but with on deck stow only.
