Geneva, Switzerland, 13th August 2015
MSC announces plans to further optimise part of its Asia-Europe network. Effective 14th September, MSC’s ‘Condor’ service, which is jointly operated with Maersk Line between Asia and Europe will cease operation.
The Condor service which has a nominal weekly capacity of 9,500 TEU, will be deployed as a seasonal service if there is sufficient demand.
Since the new Asia – Europe network was launched in January 2015, continual performance analysis has allowed us to optimise the allocation of capacity among our services to meet customer demand. Further optimisation of the Asia-Europe Network is currently being planned, full rotations and service details will be communicated week commencing 17th August.
All the above network changes apply equally to both MSC and Maersk Line and we anticipate the changes to be fully effective by Quarter 4 2015.
