Due to market demand reductions in North America and Far East Asia caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the challenges that we are all facing in managing the supply chain, Maersk is working to ensure all challenges are managed in the best way possible along this supply chain including, balancing our network to match reduced demand. We will therefore be seasonally suspending our TP8 (USWC) and TP11 (USEC) services as of week 17 until the end Q2 on the Far East Asia-North America network.

Maersk will continue to review the market outlook and will continuously adjust deployed capaci-ty to match the demand.

In addition to above mentioned seasonally suspended services, we will be blanking select sail-ings of the TP10, TP16 and TP88 as per below.

It has been decided that ports inducement will take place on the corresponding services to en-sure the continuity of current coverage with minimal disruption.

We will be ensuring the impact to our customers is minimized by rebooking the cargo to best available product as there is sufficient capacity available via these alternative services in light of the current environment.

Customers may continue to place bookings with limited disruption as we are arranging a contingency plan with alternative services.

Please feel free to reach out to your local Maersk Customer Service representatives or check Local Information and Schedules for more details.
