Maersk Line launches enhanced Asia - US East coast service, leveraging on Panama Canal expansion

July 28, 2016: Maersk Line announces several enhancements to the Asia-North America Network, in line with the recent Panama Canal expansion.

One of the major improvements are the faster transit times between East China and South Korea into North America.

Using the new Panama Canal locks, Maersk Line will be able to significantly reduce the transit days from Asian to North American ports.

For example, the transit times from Shanghai and Ningbo to Newark, Norfolk and Baltimore are now five to ten days faster.

“We are also adding new port calls in both origin and destination, giving our customers one of two direct services in the market serving Xiamen to North/South Atlantic, as well as better coverage of Asian and North American ports,” says the company through a statement.

“From North America to Asia, we’re adding an additional Busan call on our TP10 service, which reduces transit time from Savannah and Charleston to Busan by 11 and six days.”

Implementation of the new network will be from August 29 to September 4, 2016.
