In connection with the reduced demand in the months of October and November, 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.

We have previously announced temporary suspension of the AE2 service from week 39 until mid-November, which we have now made the decision to extend the temporary suspension to end-November in wk 47. 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.

AE2 suspension period will be as follows:
