Maersk to switch Charleston with Savannah on East Med loop
Maersk Line will next year replace calls at Charleston with Savannah on its weekly East Med service.
The Danish mega-carrier said the move was partly the result of 'geographical preference for some customers,' although it will retain calls at Charleston on its West Med and MECL services.
The 'Maersk Maine' will Jan. 12 be the first vessel calling Savannah instead of Charleston on the East Med loop, which uses six ships averaging about 2,100 TEUs. The service will have a revised port rotation of New York, Norfolk, Savannah, Algeciras, Alexandria, Haifa, Izmir, Gioia Tauro and back to New York.
German carrier Hapag-Lloyd takes slots on the East Med service.
