Blanking Advisory for North Europe – Far East Asia Eastbound Services

15 January 2020

We would like to inform you about the blanked sailing programme on the North Europe export services. The blank-ings are occuring in connection with the blanked Westbound sailings due to Chinese New Year seasonal demand reductions.

We aim to minimize the impact to our customers supply chain and provide predictability by making a structural change and securing alternative routings.

Overview of blanked sailings

The following sailings will be blanked:
