Golden Week Blanking advisory for North Europe Services

10 September 2019

In connection with the upcoming Golden Week period, Maersk has endeavoured to balance our network to match reduced demand. We aim to minimize the impact to our customers supply chain and provide predictability by making a structural change and securing alternative routings.

Effective week 40, Maersk Line will temporarily suspend the AE2 service until mid-November and will resume in line with demand pickup. We will of course notify you in due course. To ensure our customers will not face any business disruption, all port calls on the AE2 service will be covered on other services in our network.

The first AE2 vessel voyage to be suspended is:
