Maersk Line’s Daily Maersk service was formally launched last week.

Ulf Kreutzfeldt, company sales director for Asia-Forwarders Segment, said Philippine shippers will benefit from the overall network that the Daily Maersk service provides.

Daily Maersk is a service on the Asia-North Europe trade lane that offers a daily cut-off from ports in Asia at the same time every day, seven days a week, and always with the exact same transportation time.

The service has 70 vessels operating a daily service between four ports in Asia (Ningbo, Shanghai, Yantian, and Tanjung Pelepas) and three ports in Europe (Felixstowe, Rotterdam, and Bremerhaven).

“Because we need to maintain the continuous conveyor belt, the network has built-in safeguards to ensure that they will continue to meet the promise for the ports of rotation including transshipped cargo from the Philippines,” Kreutzfeldt said.

“Most competitors have weekly services, so when your cargo does not make the cut-off at the transshipment, it is rolled because of bottlenecks, or is affected by unforeseen circumstances in the port, will need to wait for at least 7 days to get on the next sailing.”

He added, “Although Daily Maersk is a premium product we are not likely to sell it at a premium at first. We will continue to be on the curve. Pricing will continue to be determined by the market level and through negotiations.”

Daily Maersk will not have daily cut-offs in the Philippines as it only applies to the four Asia ports. With its daily cut-offs at Tanjung Pelepas, it allows better back-up services for Philippine cargo, with an average of +2-3 days in arrival time for all of the three North Europe ports.
