Due to market demand reductions in North America and Mediterranean 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 taking out one vessel from the MMX service rotation – which will not be replaced and result in blanking the MMX every 5 wks. Starting as of week 16 outbound Mediterranean till week 36 outbound Mediterranean for now.The services are expected to resume subject to improved market demand to which we will inform you in due course. Maersk will continue to review the demand picture and will continuously adjust deployed capacity to match.

We will be ensuring the impact to our customers is minimized by rebooking the cargo to best available product option. Customers may therefore continue to place bookings with limited disruption. Please feel free to reach out to your local Maersk Customer Service representatives or check Local Information and Schedules for more details.
