Danish business conglomerate with activities in the transport, logistics and energy sectors, A.P. Moller – Maersk recently announced several enhancements to their Asia and Europe services.
The new enhancements will allow Maersk to continue to improve their schedule reliability resulting in stable and reliable cargo deliveries to their customers on the world’s most comprehensive Asia-Europe Network.
A.P. Moller – Maersk Head of Europe Trade, Johan Sigsgaard said, “To meet our customer’s increasing need for reliable cargo delivery, we have reviewed our service network and identified the additional time to recover from the potential delays we continue to face from bad weather and other external factors. I am confident that these service changes will improve our overall schedule reliability, and I look forward to servicing our customers with this upgraded product.”
Maersk operates the shipping industry’s most comprehensive Asia-Europe Network and will now offer extra operational buffer time from a net reduction of eight port calls in the network. The reductions will have minimal impact on their current product offerings, due to combining duplicate calls and competitive transshipment options. Schedule reliability will be significantly improved coupled with competitive transit times.
Along with the above changes, six extra vessels will be added across the ten services in the network, with weekly deployed capacity remaining unchanged due to slower vessel speeds.
