Maersk changes Asia/Europe service

Mar 08, 2019
AP Moller - Maersk has announced changes to its services connecting Asia and Europe intended to further improve schedule reliability, enabling stable and reliable cargo deliveries to its customers on the world’s most comprehensive Asia-Europe Network.

The enhancements build on the Asia-Europe network changes in May 2018 which, the company claims, enabled Maersk to regain a market leading position on schedule reliability.

 “To meet our customers’ increasing need for reliable cargo delivery, we have reviewed our service network and identified additional time to recover from the potential delays we continue to face from bad weather and other external factors,” said Johan Sigsgaard, Head of Europe Trade, AP Moller - Maersk. “I am confident that these service changes will improve our overall schedule reliability, and I look forward to service our customers with this upgraded product.”

The changes will allow Maersk extra operational buffer time from a net reduction of eight port calls in the network. The reductions are achieved with minimal impact to product offerings through combining duplicate calls and competitive trans-shipment options. This will result in significantly improved schedule reliability, enabled by slightly prolonged, yet competitive transit times.

Six extra vessels have also been added with weekly deployed capacity remaining unchanged due to slower vessel speeds.
