Bottlenecks across the Asia-North Europe network has contributed to an accumulation of delays on our services. We always strive to improve cargo delivery for our customers in challenging circumstances, but even a minor disruption can cause a ripple effect and lead to substantial setbacks.

The situation driven by a number of external factors, chiefly terminal congestion, and while Maersk is doing all in its power to combat the circumstances for customers, the delay accumulation for AE55 has resulted in gaps in the departure schedules that require adjustment.

In an effort to adjust network deployment across the market, the following vessel will be taken out of the AE55 service and we will do everything in our power to reintroduce a replacement in the next rotation.
