Seasonal Capacity Adjustment on Transatlantic Services due to Covid-19 Impact Extension

04 June 2020

Due to market demand reductions in North America and Europe 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 extend the seasonal suspension on our TA4 service into week 26 out-bound Europe till week 28 outbound Europe.

The services are expected to resume subject to improved market demand to which we will in-form you in due course. Maersk will continue to review the demand picture and will continu-ously adjust deployed capacity to match.

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 and it has been decided that ports inducement will take place on the corresponding services to ensure the continuity of current coverage with minimal disrup-tion.

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.
