2M Alliance consolidates Felixstowe and Rotterdam calls

Maersk and MSC are consolidating port calls at Felixstowe and Rotterdam on two of the 2M Alliance’s Far East Asia to North Europe services, as the carriers look to improve schedule reliability amidst exceptional waiting times and congestion.

As a first measure, the shipping lines will consolidate the AE1 Felixstowe port call with the AE55, shifting to and extending the port stay on the latter service to accommodate volumes from the previous AE1 call. Subsequently, they will shift the Rotterdam port call from the AE55 to the AE1 to target a leaner rotation on both services with the aim of improving transit times.
