All reefer containers have now been removed from wrecked carrier Emma Maersk, which is docked at Suez while the remaining containers are being carried off the ship, the company says to ShippingWatch on Monday.

Additionally, Maersk Line has inserted the container carrier Maersk Kokura to sail the containers from Emma Maersk on to the Far East, while the carrier 48Y-Butterfly will become a part of the shipping company's AE10-Service until Emma Maersk is ready to sail again. Maersk Line will not have to charter ships in order to "fill the holes" left by Emma Maersk and the ships that will act as its replacements.
