Moreover, Maersk has announced a short-term disruption during the round-trip voyage 204A/205B of Maersk Luz, because the vessel has dry docking plans in the period between Mid- September and Mid-November.

This means there will be a blank sailing in North Europe on the 11 September from London Gateway and on 14 October in South Africa.

Maersk has offered customers the possibility of re-booking cargo on alternative services connecting to the following sailing (Santa Ursula v.204A/205B).

Impacted Trade: Europe to/from South Africa.
