As of 19 December2023, Maersk announced that all its vessels will be temporarily diverted around the Cape of Good Hope due to the situation in the Red Sea / Gulf of Aden.

As we shared in our 6 May update, the complexity of the situation in Red Sea and the ripple effects on global supply chains have intensified in recent months causing industry-wide disruptions

Despite hopes that the situation would improve, we continue to face additional challenges and costs. These include but are not limited to the costs of the longer journeys and increased sailing speed to make up for delays. This has led to additional fuel costs and high charter rates, while operational bottlenecks have absorbed and reduced available capacity. We are doing what we can to add further capacity to our routes, in line with our customers’ needs. So far, we have leased more than 125,000 additional containers and have increased our sailing speed, as well as organised our fleet to enhance capacity where possible.

Consequently, some surcharges will increase temporarily, as shown in the table below. For the trades not mentioned, there will be no changes for now to the Peak Season Surcharge (PSS) and Temporary Disruption Surcharge (TDS) beyond those previously announced on 16 May.

If you have any questions, please contact your local Maersk representative.

Peak Season Surcharge (PSS)

* Subject to any required regulatory approvals and notice periods, after which the surcharge will apply.

If any rate changes in the advisory, it is effective from the date of the new advisory unless specifically mentioned as a different effective date.

PSS will be applied to all cargoes on the trades mentioned above regardless of vessel routings.

The rates apply to all OOG,SOC and NOR containers also. So 40 Flat/Open/NOR will have the same rate as 40 Dry.
