Due to the current challenging market situation impacting port activities, generating congestion and schedule delays across the supply chain, 2M Alliance is planning to adjust the sailing programme on its Transpacific West Coast US & Canada network.
With the schedule’s changes, Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), which comprises 2M Alliance with Maersk Line, said it aims to match the actual departure dates from Asia.
Therefore, the Swiss-based container line has announced the revision of the voyage numbers on the following services to provide better schedule reliability:
|Asia to West Coast US and Canada|
|SERVICE||VESSEL NAME||CURRENT VOYAGE NUMBER||NEW VOYAGE NUMBER||POL||NEW ETA|
|TP8/Orient||Cap San Vincent||123N||126N||Qingdao||28 June|
|TP9/Maple||Northern Julie||UM124N||UM125N||Nansha||25 June|
MSC added it is arranging a contingency plan with alternative services to give its customers the possibility to continue bookings placement.
