Maersk announces Golden Week blank sailings

In connection with the upcoming Golden Week period, Maersk has endeavoured to balance its network to match reduced demand.

Effective week 40, Maersk Line will temporarily suspend the AE2 service until mid-November and will resume in line with demand pickup. “To ensure our customers will not face any business disruption, all port calls on the AE2 service will be covered on other services in our network,” Maersk says in its announcement.

The first AE2 vessel voyage to be suspended is:
