Maersk Adjusts Baltic Sea Services
Danish container carrier Maersk modifies three of its Baltic Sea sailing routes including the launch of a new Baltic Feeder, as well as adjustments on its Bremerhaven to Finland Butterfly and Russia to Morocco service.
On February 9th, the new Baltic Feeder service connecting Bremerhaven, Copenhagen and Helsingborg has been launched. KORNETT will be the only vessel employed on this service, guaran- teeing a weekly capacity of 870 TEU.

The new service aims to ensure coverage of Copenhagen and Helsingborg, which have been dropped from Maersk Bremerhaven to Finland service. Additionally, Riga and Helsinki have been displaced from the port rotation. The two ports will be accessible via feeder service provided by Unifeeder. The number of vessels deployed on the service will also be reduced from 3 to 2.

Finally, Maersk transforms one of its two Russia to Morocco services into an Agadir to St Petersburg shuttle by dropping the calls in Casablanca and Rotterdam. There will be 3 vessels deployed on that service guaranteeing a weekly frequency with a weekly capacity of 870 TEU. The remaining Russia to Morocco service stays unchanged.
