2M Alliance implements blank sailings in Asia – North Europe services

The largest shipping alliance in the world, 2M Alliance which comprises Maersk and MSC, has decided to implement several blank sailings from Asia to North Europe.

2M Alliance is planning the following sailing omissions in weeks 39 and 40 aiming to "enhance schedule reliability," according to MSC's announcement.
