Maersk: Chinese New Year Network Changes

Far East Asia to North Europe; Far East Asia to Mediterranean

North Europe to Far East Asia; Mediterranean to Far East Asia

In connection with the upcoming Chinese New Year period, Maersk Line has endeavoured to balance our network to match reduced demand for the next several weeks. We aim to minimize the impact to our customers by securing alternative routings wherever possible.

This communication is intended to inform you about all impacted sailings, and we will also share the alternative routings for you to book on. Note there may be some cases where there is no suitable alternative and the cargo must wait for the next available sailing.

We hope that these alternative routings allow you to identify better ways to optimize your supply chain while reducing service disruptions. These alternatives are in the process of being updated in our systems. For further questions, we encourage you to liaise with your local Maersk Line customer service representative or check my.maerskline.com/.
