2M Partners Divert Ships from APMTR

Danish container shipping giant Maersk Line and its 2M partner MSC are diverting four boxships from their joint Transatlantic TA3 service from APM Terminals to Europe Container Terminals (ECT) in Rotterdam.

The impacted vessels will be Maersk Kawasaki, Maersk Kure, MSC Charleston, and Maersk Kowloon, Maersk Line said in an advisory.

“This change is dictated by the current situation at APMTR where we experienced delays in the past weeks. By changing the terminal we can ensure on time departure and avoid delays at destination ports in USA,” Maersk Line added.

The affected calls range from July 27 till August 17.

As disclosed, the change is temporary and it will be reviewed after the departure of MSC Charleston.

The announcement comes on the heels of the Petya cyber attack from June 27 that hit several of Maersk’s 76 APM Terminals.

APMT Maasvlakte 2 at the Port of Rotterdam was one of the hardest hit terminals with only 1 vessel berthing between June 28 and July 6. During the days following the cyber attack, the terminal stopped all loading and discharging activities, CargoSmart’s data shows
