There continues to be severe operational bottlenecks across multiple Brazillian ports, resulting in delays to supply chains utilising them. The operational challenges are expected to last at least through Q2 2024.

Your supply chain is of the utmost importance to us, and our goal is to ensure that your supply chain moves with the least amount of disruption possible. As the above-mentioned challenges are having a negative impact to all port calls on the Bossa Nova rotation, we making alterations to our rotation.

The new rotation is going to be:

Service Europe/East Coast South America First Sailing
Europe/East Coast South America
Algeciras – Tangier – Salvador – Rio de Janeiro SB – Santos – Itapoa – Paranagua – Santos – Sepetiba – Tangier
First Sailing
MAERSK LEON 409S ETA Salvador 11/March

Please note that customers impacted due to the Rio de Janeiro SB port being omitted, will be offered alternative routing using our intra Brazil network via Santos to Rio de Janeiro.

If you have further questions or need more information on your cargo, please visit or reach out to your local Maersk representative. Our teams remain ready to assist you.
