Sep 8, 2016

In response to the changing market situation on the Transpacific trade, Maersk Line is introducing a new service between Asia and the United States West Coast. The TP1 service will complement Maersk Line’s existing product portfolio on the Transpacific. The first sailing is scheduled for 15 September.

“We are responding to increased demand in the Transpacific. With supply chains disrupted, many customers are approaching us for transport solutions for their cargo. The TP1 service is a stable, long term solution to meet our customers’ needs,” says Klaus Rud Sejling, Head of Maersk Line’s East-West Network.
