Maersk AS in New Agreement with Malaysian MISC Berhad

Maersk Line has entered a vessel sharing agreement, with Malaysian MISC Berhad on shipping lanes between South East Asia and New Zealand.
The agreement, which takes effect on June 9, includes three ships operated by Maersk Line and one operated by MISC.
SeaTrade Asia, quoting a statement of the Danish container giant, said the service will deploy four 4,100 TEU vessels (three operated by Maersk Line and the fourth by MISC Berhad) and will continue along the current Maersk Line port rotation: Tanjung Pelepas (Malaysia), Singapore, Brisbane (Australia), Auckland (New Zealand), Port Chalmers (New Zealand), and Tanjung Pelepas (Malaysia).
The arrangement will help reduce excess capacity and put the route on a more sustainable footing, Maersk’s Oceania chief executive Søren Houman said.
The fixed weekly service will begin on June 9 , with Auckland and Port Chalmers, Dunedin, as the two New Zealand stops.
“The new arrangement will allow both our companies to better utilise our assets, providing the optimal service structure for customers in New Zealand and improving overall economic and environmental efficiency,” Mr Houman said.
