Service Upgrade - Far East to Southern Africa and Mauritius Trade

Published on 04 January 2019

To our Valued Customers,

We are excited to be able to share with you the significant improvements to our Safari service which will take effect almost immediately. The new Safari rotation will include an export call at Durban making the new rotation:

Kobe – Nagoya – Yokohama – Ningbo – Shanghai - Hong Kong – Shekou - Tanjung Pelepas - Port Louis – Durban - Port Elizabeth – Durban - Tanjung Pelepas - Hong Kong – Shanghai - Kobe

This change will give us greater flexibility on the import call into Durban with the aim of further improving our reliability as well as shortening our Port Elizabeth import transit time with approx. 4 days. We do not expect any significant change to our Durban import transit time. On the export side this change will vastly improve our Durban export product and cut transit times by almost 7 days for most key Asian ports.

This product change will be effective from the vessel MAERSK SKARSTIND 1902 calling Shanghai 3rd of Jan and Durban 26th of Jan.

If you have further questions, we encourage you to visit www.maersk.com or liaise with your local Maersk customer service representative.
