In order to improve our PNG Service schedule reliability and remove operational bottleneck, we would like to advise that we are removing our direct call at the Port of Wewak. Wewak remains an important location for us and will continue to be covered by a coastal third party feeder operator (Bismark Maritime) with improved frequency. All other port calls on our PNG service rotation remain unchanged.

Please find the below planned implementation changes and cut over vessel/voyage details that will also be reflected in our online schedules:

The PNG/08H Express. Last Maersk vessel voyage with direct Wewak call:
