Europe - Middle East & Indian Subcontinent Blank Sailing Announcement

06 April 2020

In relation to the COVID-19 effect, we have seen a significant reduction in demand. Consequently, Maersk has endeavoured to make a series of blanked sailings to match demand from Indian Subcontinent and Middle East to North Europe and Mediterranean. We aim to minimize the impact to our customers supply chain and provide predictability by securing a service plan and alternative routings upfront.

We will make alternated blank sailings between ME1, ME2 and ME3 services as described below to ensure our customers face as little business disruption. The services will be fully reinstated in line with demand pick up.

The planned suspended vessel listed below and subject to change according to demand
