2M Alliance comprising the largest shipping lines in the world, Maersk and MSC, will implement changes for services between Asia, the United States (US) and Canada.

The two companies aim to confront port congestion and schedule delays across the supply chain, making adjustments to the sailing programmes.

In particular, 2M Alliance has rescheduled the estimated time of arrival (ETA) for voyages on the Jaguar/TP2, Orient/TP8, and Sequoia/TP3 services from Asia to the US and West Coast of Canada, as follows:
