Ebola Forcing Maersk to Reshuffle

Ebola Forcing Maersk to Reshuffle

Due to the outbreak of Ebola in some countries in West Africa, Maersk Line’s ships calling the region have over the past couple of weeks been facing increasing health and safety measures. The main objective of these measures is to prevent the spread of the virus, the company said in a release.

One of these measures is making changes to Maersk Line port coverage. In order to adhere to the stricter measures put in place Maersk Line has reviewed the coverage of the region, effective from  week 36 ( September 1-7).

The company states that the changes will have only a smaller impact on transit times, however, it will enable Maersk Line to comply with local and international health measures.

The port coverage changes are as follows:

  • WAF1. NEW rotation: Tangier/Algeciras/Abidjan/Onne/San Pedro/Tangier;
  • WAF2. NEW rotation: Tangier/Algeciras/Lome/Cotonou/Douala/Lome/Tangier;
  • WAF6: NEW rotation: Tangier/Algeciras/Apapa/Cotonou/Tangier;
