Pandemic is continuing to affect liner schedules

Covid-19 pandemic continues to challenge the container shipping industry, forcing shipping lines to implement several blank sailings and rotation changes across the world.

Maersk Line has announced seasonal adjustments in December for its Asia to North Europe services, due to market demand volatility and operational challenges caused by the virus crisis, including congestion across global supply chains.
