Maersk Line announced a number of changes to its Euromed service (43G) serving Northern Europe to the Eastern Mediterranean, taking 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 increase the dedicated capacity to these markets, reduce transit times and expanding the direct port coverage.
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.
