Maersk Promises Improved Trans-Pacific Network

Maersk Line has announced an improvement of its Trans-Pacific network by the end of May 2011. Among the improvements will be an expanded coverage of the Yangtze River region. This is a direct result of customer preferences, Maersk writes in a press release. The improved network is supposed to enable Maersk Line to deliver to more competetive prices as well as reduce the carbon discharge.

The new improved services also includes more and larger vessels and a coverage from South and Central China to and from the US West Coast. According to Maersk Line the focus is on delivering the highest reliability to Southeast Asia and China, to and from the U.S. West Coast, where the demand is high.

Bill Woodhour, Senior Vice President, Maersk Line North America, says the changes to Maersk’s trans-Pacific services will give the customers the most competitive transit times in the market.

“With the addition of larger vessels, we will be able to meet increasing demand in key markets while delivering a more environmentally responsible product,” Bill Woodhour says.

According to the press release, an intra-Asia feeder options enables Maersk Line to penetrate over 100 local market locations and integrate these areas with our vast service network.

Lars Mikael Jensen, Vice President, Network and Product, Pacific Services is quoted:

“We are the number 1 carrier in on-time reliability and our aim is to increase that to an even higher percentage. Marrying reliability with ease of business and environmental consideration allows us to deliver the best service for our customers.”
