The largest container alliance in the world, 2M Alliance of Maersk and MSC has decided to adjust the sailing programme on its Asia to US and Canada network.

This action is a result of the “current challenging market situation impacting port activities, generating congestion and schedule delays across the supply chain”, according to an MSC announcement.

The two companies, aiming to match the actual departure dates from Asia, will revise the voyage numbers on the below services to provide better schedule reliability.
