Chinese New Year Contingency: FW1, FW6 and M-express services


Dear Valued Customer,


With the Chinese New Year approaching in the People’s Republic of China, we will be implementing the contingencies mentioned below to cater for the reduced demand as production output slows due to factory closures:


FW1 westbound sailings in week 5 (CMA CGM TOPAZ 181W) and week 7 (CMA CGM TURQUOISE 185W) will be catered for via the FW6 vessels departing in these weeks.


FW6 westbound sailing in week 6 (CMA CGM OTELLO 1954) will be catered for via the FW1 vessel departing in this week.


The M-express service sailing in week 7 and week 9 ex Tanjung Pelepas will be cancelled. We will have a product for Maputo and Beira destined cargo via Safari into Durban and then connecting onto the Mozambique Feeder.


Please note that the above mentioned contingencies will impact the export voyages from the destination countries for cargo destined to the Far East.


Should you have further queries, please contact your local MAERSK LINE office.
