Changes to Euromed service from Northern Europe to Eastern Mediterranean

By: | at 08:00 PM | Channel(s): Liner Shipping  

Maersk Line is announcing a number of changes to its Euromed service (43G) serving Northern Europe to the Eastern Mediterranean, which will take effect on 20 July, 2009.

The revised rotation, to commence from vessel Maersk Bintan 741/0919, will be Felixstowe-Rotterdam-Bremerhaven-Alexandria-Port Said-Haifa-Ashdod-Gioia Tauro to Felixstowe.

Changes to our current Euromed rotation are:

  • Gioia Tauro removed from the Southbound rotation
  • Haifa added
  • Gioia Tauro added to the Northbound rotation

With the new Euromed rotation Maersk Line will further improve our Northern Europe to Egypt/Israel product by increasing the dedicated capacity to these markets, reducing transit times and expanding the direct port coverage.

To complement these changes Maersk Line will also launch a new East-West Mediterranean feeder service to cater for Gioia Tauro-Alexandria volumes as well as other key corridors. The rotation will be Algeciras-Gioia Tauro-Alexandria-Mersin-Izmir-Algeciras.

The revised sailing schedule and more information about Maersk Line’s global network can be found on our website www.maerskline.com
