Maersk Ocean Network 2025

Shipping from Asia to Europe

With our new network, we are excited to offer our customers a wide range of benefits with similar geographical coverage as today.

Improving service quality

Our new mainliner network will have extensive and robust coverage. To supplement this we are introducing shuttles for our strategic markets. Dedicated shuttles will be operated similarly to the mainliners, which means they will have same priority at terminals, they will be fully controlled by Maersk and they will often be similar sized to our mainliners. This will allow end to end operational control to secure connections across the ocean network and thereby deliver a wider coverage with unparalleled reliability.

Note: The network representation is subject to finalization including terminal berth windows.
