Maersk Line Implements Change to their Asia-Europe Network
Logistics Manager

Denmark based Maersk Line recently announced several changes to their services connecting Europe with Asia, the changes are necessary to allow the company to focus on increasing the reliability of the world’s biggest and most extensive Asia-Europe network.

Improvements are being made to continually address clients requirements for an efficient and reliable service and to increase the competitive reach and coverage of key markets and ports in both Asia and Europe.

Head of Europe Trade for Maersk Line, Johan Sigsgaard commented, “We are pleased to provide our customers with this revised network, which will offer them a higher level of cargo arrival reliability.”

Traditional factors such as weather conditions and Port congestion often contribute to reliability issues on the Asia-Europe services. However, new changes introduced by the shipping line will tackle these issues head-on and significantly improve buffers in the shipping schedules. These buffers will allow the company to accommodate potential disruptions in service and minimize any impact on service delivery.

Mr. Sigsgaard added, “Forced port omissions disrupt cargo flows and impact our customers’ supply chains. This network is designed to reduce the necessity to omit ports.”

Reliability will be enhanced with the reduction of the total number of duplicate port calls resulting in a better allocation for buffer times throughout the hub ports. There will be a reduction of 17 port calls on North European and Mediterranean strings, with an extra vessel being added to the network.

The amended portfolio will enable the company to better manage and balance capacity throughout all markets this will result in the reduction of oversupply and offer bolstered services to key Asian and European ports.

Tailored products have been designed to maintain direct coverage of all the key markets for North European, Mediterranean, and the Adriatic countries along with a specific focus on Middle East markets.

This new westbound service will be in operation in May this year.
