Seasonal Capacity Adjustment – FEA-SAF Trade

31 March 2020

Due to market demand reductions in Far East to Southern Africa trade caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Maersk endeavors to balance our network to match reduced demand. Therefore the Safari vessel (GSL NINGBO 014S) currently planned for week 15 in Ningbo (6th Apr) and Shanghai (8th Apr) will not sail to South Africa and Mauritius. Please note that Asia sailing plan of GSL NINGBO is still under evaluation, and you will be informed your cargo contingency plan once our Asian coastal coverage is finalized.

Our normal weekly sailings to South Africa and Mauritius will continue from the following week. You are therefore very welcome to continue to book on the GSL NINGBO 014S and your cargo will be delivered for that specific week with 7 days extended transit time.

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