Maersk Sealand is to move a number of services from Gioia Tauro, Italy to the new Suez Canal Container Terminal (SCCT) in Port Said, Egypt. The transfers of the Eastern Mediterranean services to Port Said, which will take place over the coming months, will not only provide Maersk Sealand’s customers with a better service into Egypt, Israel, Lebanon, Cyprus and Turkey, but also release additional capacity in Gioia Tauro. Eventually, the feeder coverage to and from SCCT will include the Black Sea area, which will mean that the Black Sea and Turkey will be served via both Gioia Tauro and Port Said. At present, feeder coverage in the area is available through a combination of Maersk Sealand and third party feeders, and this will continue in the future. However, service patterns and vessel schedules will be revised, with the information being made available to customers prior to the changes taking place.
