“Bottlenecks across the Asia-North Europe network have contributed to an accumulation of delays on our services. We always strive to improve cargo delivery for our customers in challenging circumstances, but even a minor disruption can cause a ripple effect and lead to substantial setbacks,” commented Maersk.

The Danish ocean carrier added that the situation is driven by a number of external factors, mainly terminal congestion, and that the delay accumulation for the service has resulted in gaps in the departure schedules that require adjustment.

Additionally, 2M Alliance has decided to adjust the voyages numbers starting from the following sailings to match with corresponding actual departure weeks of the vessels and services.

“The unprecedented situation of severe port congestion globally continues to result in accumulation of delays across several services on the Asia to Med network,” said Maersk in a statement.

The Copenhagen-based container line added, “This situation is driven by a combination of increased demand and measures to fight the pandemic across ports and supply chains in general. These accumulated delays are currently causing vessels to sail more than a week late, compared to the planned vessel schedules.”
