At Maersk, your needs always come first. That’s why we are continuously trying to simplify the way you do business with us. Container damages can happen at any stage of your supply chain, so we have decided to introduce a new product to ensure you will not be liable for any damaged equipment (within the coverage limit) and will be protected against financial losses.

As of 15th December 2022, a new product, called Container Protect Essential, will come into effect, and is offered to all shipments imported into United Kingdom, Ireland, Israel, Bulgaria, Romania, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Lebanon, Libya and Syria as part of the import standard offering for all commodities.

Container Protect Essential

  • United Kingdom and Ireland import: GBP 15 / container*
    • New product covers container repair and cleaning cover up to GBP 200. It is a new standard product to be included in quotations but is not mandatory

Applicable from*

  • For non-Spot, bookings the effective date is from 15th December 2022 for Price Calculation Date (PCD).
  • For Spot bookings, the effective date is December 15th 2022 for Booking Creation Date (BCD).
