Maersk Move Felixstowe Services

Jul 15, 2018 | News

The operating system delays at Felixstowe Port appear to be set to continue, as MAERSK Line have announced they are moving two 2M alliance loops to the Port of Liverpool for a three month period.

The first two vessels diverted to Liverpool are due to arrive on the 20th and 22nd July – MV Archimidis from the TA2 service and MV Cap Beatrice from the COEX service.

Meanwhile, Felixstowe continues to struggle with its productivity, which is heavily impacting operations. More Shipping Lines are having to divert vessels to other ports in the UK, and in some cases trans-ship UK containers through European ports.

For example, a scheduled call by the MSC Zoe will now skip the port and have its UK cargo discharged in Zeebrugge for onward connection via feeder vessels.

Uniserve are monitoring the situation closely and are continuing to manage the situation through our facilities in Felixstowe, Southampton & Tilbury.  If you require further information then please contact your local Uniserve representative.
