Congestion leads Maersk to cut Shanghai and Chiwan calls

Congestion leads Maersk to cut Shanghai and Chiwan calls

Maersk Line has announced that it will temporarily suspend calls at the ports of Shanghai and Chiwan (Shenzen) due to congestion.

In a statement to customers, the company said that its AE2 and AE11 services have faced “significant reliability challenges largely driven by Asian port congestion leading to delays in ports.”

The statement continued: “As there is no outlook for improvement in the Asian port situation, and to ensure a stable product to our customers, we have been forced to make a temporary adjustment to our network in westbound direction.”

From December 21, AE11 will not call at Chiwan in Shenzen and from December 22, Maersk’s AE2 service will no longer call at Shanghai.
