2M Alliance stops calling Felixstowe on AE7/Condor service

The world's largest container shipping alliance, 2M Alliance has announced the removal of the Port of Felixstowe from its AE7/Condor service's rotation until March 2022.

The alliance, which comprises Maersk and MSC, said it is implementing this specific measure to improve the schedule reliability on Far East Asia to North Europe network, in light of ongoing network issues and as a result of exceptional waiting times in the port.

"The current supply-chain bottlenecks in the United Kingdom continues to challenge our service reliability," stated Maersk in an announcement.

The sailings departing from the Chinese port of Ningbo that will omit Felixstowe on AE7/Condor service are the following:

"We aim to minimise the impact on our customers by securing alternative routings," noted Maersk, which also announced that the affected Felixstowe volumes will be routed on a shuttle service from the German town of Wilhelmshaven.

"We take this action with extreme reluctance and will be working hard to ensure that we can return the network to normality when operating conditions allow," added the Danish container line.
