Maersk Announces Service Enhancements

Tuesday, July 17, 2007
Maersk Line announced service enhancements between North America and the East Mediterranean area. The company says the enhancements will enable them to meet customers' requirements for schedule reliability and fast transit times. As of August 2007, Maersk will introduce calls at Port Said (Egypt) on the MECL 1 (eastbound) and MECL 2 (westbound) services. The terminal in Port Said is operated by APM Terminals and especially developed as a transhipment centre.

Features include: - Improved schedule reliability and faster transhipment services in selected corridors such as Haifa to Savannah in just 14 days

- Reliable and efficient connections via Port Said (Egypt) to Izmir, Haifa, and other East Mediterranean ports via Maersk Line's own feeder network thus minimising any impact of port congestion

- Weekly fixed-day departures

- Unrivalled access to key markets in the East Mediterranean area

- Improved transit times to/from North America and fastest transit times in the industry to/from the developing South Atlantic market via Savannah (Georgia)

- Global connectivity via seamless access to Maersk Line's worldwide network

The first MECL 1 (eastbound) departure from the US East Coast to Port Said will be the Maersk Missouri, voyage 0713, departing Newark on 28 August and Charleston on 1 September 2007. The first MECL 2 (westbound) departure from Port Said (Egypt) to North America will be the Maersk Daesan, voyage 0710, on 2 August 2007.

Maersk will discontinue our East Med service and cargo moving between the East Mediterranean and North America will be carried on our reliable MECL services.
