Asia – Europe network improvements

Maersk Line is pleased to announce improvements to our Asia - Europe network for implementation mid-May 2009 and onwards. Our service developments will offer our customers:
More direct port coverage
Unchanged Asia - Europe network capacity
Enhanced product reliability
A stronger product from Asia to the Adriatic
On our Asia to Northern Europe strings, we will concentrate our UK services into Felixstowe (AE1 service) and improve the direct coverage between China and Le Havre (AE10 service).

“We are very pleased to announce these Asia - Europe service improvements. We believe it displays our commitment to our customers, also in the present volatile trading environment. With these changes we are offering a wider range of port calls than ever before” says Lee Sissons, Director of Asia-Europe services in Maersk Line.

AE1: Japan, South China and Malaysia to Northern Europe Westbound we will add Felixstowe and remove Le Havre and Southampton. There are no changes eastbound. We will focus our Asia-UK coverage in Felixstowe to improve efficiencies in our vessel network and our UK inland haulage set up. For this reason, the Southampton call on will cease. The Le Havre call will be moved to the AE10 service.
