Maersk Closes its Russia - Morocco Service and Opens New Baltic Service

March 14, 2014 at 09:28 by FleetMon Container Liner News in Container Shipping

Maersk closes its Russia-Morocco service as of 27th March. The service saw the suspension of the calls at Rotterdam and Casablanca at the beginning of the year to ensure faster transit times between Morocco and St Petersburg during the citrus season which is now coming to an end. The service used to deploy 3 vessels on a weekly-frequency and a 21 day-rotation. It had an average service capacity of 870 TEU per week.

The 870 TEU vessel RUTH, which used to serve the Russia – Morocco service, is expected to open a new route in the Baltic. The service is expected to run fortnightly and start operating on 15th March. Maersk’s Baltic network remains unchanged otherwise.

Russia- Morocco: Agadir - Kiel Canal (way point) - St Petersburg - Kiel Canal (way point) – Agadir

New Baltic Service: Bremerhaven - Kiel Canal (way point) - Kronhstadt - Rauma - Kiel Canal (way point) - Bremerhaven
