New enhanced Ocean network - Far East Asia to/from North America
Maersk remains committed to supporting our customers needs during this period of high demand and continued operational delays. As congestion continues to damper capacity and with a view to the incoming peak surge, Maersk will launch two new weekly services, the TPX and TP20 to help normalize the network for our contracted customers. Both services will be exclusively operated by Maersk.
The new weekly Transpacific West Coast service – TPX - will include port calls in Yantian (China - ICT), Ningbo (China – J4) and Los Angeles (U.S. – APMT Pier 400). Deployed vessels will primarily be in the 3,500 TEU segment. Service will commence in August.
The new weekly Transpacific East Coast service – TP20 – will include ports calls in Vung Tau (Vietnam - Gemalink), Ningbo (China – J4), Shanghai (China - Yangshan), Norfolk (U.S. - VIG) and Baltimore (U.S. - Seagirt). Deployed vessels will primarily be in the 4,500 TEU segment. Service will commence in August.
The introduction of the TPX and TP20 will not cause any changes to our existing network. More details on rotation, deployment and exact start dates will be shared in due course. The commencement of the service will also be subject to all applicable regulatory compliance requirements.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your business and for your continued reliance on Maersk as your trusted partner in serving your global transportation needs.
