Maersk Update on Halifax Port Omissions
Maersk has provided an update on the multiple Halifax port omissions it has experienced since end of quarter 4, 2021:
The operational environment has been extremely challenging and has impacted vessel proforma schedules due to numerous reasons, including, but not limited to:
- Bad winter weather in North Europe and crossing the Atlantic Ocean
- Congestion at North European terminals
- COVID-related delays at time vessels need quarantine for 14 days
We understand that we had no vessel calling Halifax since Feb. 12 with the omission of Maersk Penang 204W/206E, EM Kea 207W/209E, our operations team is working collaboratively to reinstate the Halifax port call for Maersk Patras 205W/207E expected in Halifax March 13, 2022 to control the gap of service with an aim of minimum fortnightly calls to Halifax during the upcoming weeks.
