Maersk enhances services from Kenya to Europe

Maersk has decided to strengthen its Mombasa to North Europe service, specifically Felixstowe and Rotterdam, by providing a single transhipment product via the Port of Salalah in Oman.

The changes in the network are primarily aimed at providing higher predictability and offering more flexibility to customers’ supply chains, according to the Danish carrier.

Maersk said that redesigning the network from Salalah, the ME7 service will bring more resilience to customers’ supply chains, further protecting them from operational challenges that arise out of contingencies.

“This ocean product enhancement will ensure further peace of mind to Kenyan exporters injecting more resilience, predictability, and reliability into our customers’ supply chains, particularly essential for perishable cargo from Kenya,” said Carl Lorenz, Maersk Eastern Africa Managing Director.

The ME7 service will connect Kenya’s exports via Salalah to Europe, while it will also provide regular rotations between the hubs of Colombo and Salalah.

“With our redesigned ocean network, we are not only providing our customers with predictability and resilience, but also greater speed to market allowing them to optimise their inventories and operations to meet the surge in demand with a competitive edge,” commented Bhavan Vempati, Regional Head of Ocean Management, Maersk West & Central Asia.
