Furthermore, 2M Alliance's Dragon service will prolong its Hong Kong northbound call omission due to the continued port congestion on the Australian East Coast for another four weeks, effective from the container vessel Santa Tresa/ voyage 038N. The first announcement issued on 19 August and had introduced an initial four-week Hong Kong omission.

The following vessels will continue to omit the Hong Kong northbound call:

  • Santa Teresa 038N ETA Sydney 22 September
  • Santa Catarina 039N ETA Sydney 29 September
  • Tasman 040N ETA Sydney 6 October
  • RDO Concert 041N ETA Sydney 13 October

The northbound Hong Kong call on the Dragon service will resume from the vessel RDO Concord 042N ETA Sydney 20 October 2020.

Another service alteration is the update of the Barcelona feeder rotation. Maersk has announced that starting from week 43 (19-25 October), the rotation of L75 feeder service will be: Barcelona, Genoa/Vado-Ligure, La Spezia, For sur Mer, Barcelona, Algeciras, Port Tangier, Barcelona

The essential change is the cancellation of the call at Genoa SECH terminal, which will receive its last L75 call by Nora Maersk Voyage 043W with an estimated time of arrival (ETA) on 17 October.
