Maersk Merges its Far East - South America service AC3 and its Far East - South Africa Service SAFARI

As of April, Maersk wants to merge its Far East – South Africa service SAFARI with the Far East – West Coast South America service AC3. This will offer a direct link between South Africa and South America’s West Coast.

The current SAFARI service deploys 9 vessels on a weekly-frequency and a 63 day-rotation. It is served by Maersk’s “S” series vessels (see Picture MAERSK SENTOSA) each with a capacity of 7,250 TEU.

The Far East – West Coast South America service AC3 currently deploys 12 vessels on a weekly- frequency and an 84 day-rotation. It has an average weekly service capacity of 6,500 TEU.
