On 5 January 2024, Maersk announced, that to prioritize the safety of our seafarers and your cargo, and in the light of the risks, delays and difficulties associated with transiting the Red Sea / Gulf of Aden, all its vessels will be temporarily diverted around the Cape of Good Hope for the foreseeable future. By temporarily suspending voyages through the Red Sea / Gulf of Aden, we hope to bring our customers more consistency and predictability despite the associated delays that come with the re-routing. However, this has ultimately brought about increased costs as we try to mitigate the severe disruptions and ripple effects of the ongoing situation.

As previously mentioned in our advisory, our teams will continue to evaluate the impact of the situation and review the surcharges depending on the circumstances.

Basis the recent review, please find the changes to the Peak Season Surcharge (PSS) for certain trades mentioned in the table below.

For the trades not mentioned in today’s advisory, there will be NO changes to the rate levels for PSS and TDS beyond what was previously announced in our advisory updated on 4 January. You can find that advisory further below on this page.

Please note that the rate applicable for Maersk SPOT and Maersk GO bookings have been adjusted to reflect circumstances at the time of booking. The current rate for TDS, ECS and PSS will not be added unless expressly stated in the price breakdown. For contracts with less than 1M validity & OOG, please consult your sales representatives on the applicability of ECS and PSS.

We appreciate your trust, loyalty and understanding during such challenging times. Our teams are here to serve you, so if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your local Maersk representative.
