Seasonal Capacity Adjustment on Far East Asia to East Coast South America services due to Covid-19 Impact

10 April 2020

Due to market demand reductions in Far East Asia and Latin America 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 blanking services as per below.

Maersk will continue to review the demand picture and will continuously adjust deployed capacity to match it.

We aim to minimize the impact to our customers’ supply chain by providing predictability and securing a service plan with alternative routings upfront.
