Maersk Line Slashes West Central Asia / Europe Capacity by Sixth

Danish container shipping giant Maersk Line is planning to reduce capacity on its West Central Asia / Europe network by around 16% starting from October.

The carrier plans to dismiss its ME5 service and add some of the ports covered by it to the ME1, ME2 and ME3 services.

The ME5 service covered the ports of Algeciras and Valencia in Spain, Genoa in Italy, Port Said in Egypt, Aqaba in Jordan, Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, Djibouti in Djibouti, Sallalah in Oman, Colombo in Sri Lanka, and Chennai in India.

The termination of the service will not impact the customers using the ME5 service Maersk says, as the company is also planning to launch a dedicated feeder shuttle between Chennai, Colombo and Salalah.
