During the past weeks, we have experienced significantly reduced demand for shipments ex Asia into the US. In the face of this reduced demand, we have decided to take certain actions in order to strengthen our offered transit times and reliability. We will therefore temporarily merge our US East Coast TP20 and TP28 services. That changes will alleviate existing port congestions.

Routing Summary

These two services will merge onto our new TP20. The first sailing will be the Maersk Kentucky sailing ex Jakarta 17 October, with the rotation as follows.

Jakarta – Vung Tau – Shanghai – Ningbo – Busan – Panama transit – Mobile - Newark

Last sailing of the old TP20 rotation will be the JPO Libra voyage 240E sailing from Jakarta on 8 October.
