Maersk Line: Daily Maersk 6 months ahead of budget

With a business activity level that is 34 percent higher than expected, Daily Maersk has already reached the level it was expected to reach by the end of 2012, the shipping company informs ShippingWatch. In this article, you can see how Daily Maersk could be developed further.

The new Maersk Line concept, Daily Maersk, resulting in daily calls in European ports from Asia, has already shown a development so positive that the business case expected by the company by the end of 2012 has already been reached. The volume on the routes covered by Daily Maersk is up by 34 percent. So says the Maersk Line Chief Trade and Marketing Officer Vincent Clerc in an interview with ShippingWatch in which he talks about the development so far as well as the thoughts about how to expand Daily Maersk in the future.

“Daily Maersk is something we are happy about. Operationally, it has been a big success as we have been able to prove that we are capable of delivering more than 98 percent of the volume on time and we have even had a couple of weeks in which we have been on time 100 percent of the time without a single container being delayed. That improvement is enormous for us as well as for the reliability of the entire industry”.
