MAERSK to Call Port of Busan Port

By Finance

The company of Maersk is going to add Busan, South Korea, to the schedule of the Asia-Europe (AE10 service). South Korea’s port of Busan is one of the world’s leading container hubs and expects rising volumes on the back of increasing trade from the area into North Europe and Russia.
The new Maersk's service is a unique product in the shipping market with a direct call among both Busan, Kwangyang (Korea) and the Polish Gdansk, opening the Eastern gateway with faster transit times and high reliability.
On the back of extensive network and dedicated rail connection to the hinterlands of Poland and Germany, clients of Maersk Line stand to gain with efficient delivery options to key industrial hubs.
The new Triple-E ships (Economy of scale, Energy efficiency and Environmentally enhanced) are also soon going to be phased in on the AE10 service. This suggests not just space to meet the demands of clients, but also reduces CO2 emissions by over 50% per container moved, compared to the industry average CO2 performance on the Asia-Europe trade.
The service is promising enhanced transit times on the westbound rotation by 4-5 days. The 1st ship calling KRBUSPN terminal (Westbound rotation) is going to be the Ebba Maersk; ETA Busan on 29 April.
