East Coast South America to/from Europe market slow-down results in capacity adjustment.

To ensure we continue to offer all our customers the most efficient network design and uphold industry leading environmental emissions standards, we would like to let you know that from the 5th January 2015, capacity and reefer plugs were adjusted to more accurately match market demands. This has resulted in a 10% reduction in overall market capacity, including plug capacity.

Smaller vessels of between 4,500 and 6,500 TEU capacity are phasing in and will provide a more efficient operation in line with today’s market demand. These changes will have no effect on the superior products and service our customer’s already enjoy.

If you are unsure about anything related to the above, or would like to talk through this with a Maersk Line representative, please reach out to your local Maersk Line office.
