Maersk introduces new rotation on Asia-Europe network
Maersk introduces new changes to its services connecting Asia and Europe.
Changes implemented in the second quarter of 2018 have improved the reliability of company’s schedules. However, port congestions and unfavorable weather conditions have resulted in delays. “We are now progressing on the improvements made earlier in 2018 to further enhance our schedule reliability across our Asia-Europe Network”, Danish shipping giant said in its press release.
Specifically, the new schedules will have more sailing time between ports which can be used for schedule recovery. Moreover, there will be 6 vessels added to the Asia-Europe Network to allow for slow-down of the network. “We will offer competitive transit time across all markets with slightly prolonged or maintained transit time on a much improved schedule reliability”, Maersk said.
The first Westbound sailings on company’s revised Asia-Europe network will take place in March 2019.
