Vessel Change Advisory

  • Please note that the US Flag feeder Maersk Arkansas, currently covering the Mediterranean ports of Port Said, Iskenderun and Mersin, will be reflagged upon arrival at Port Said on July 16, 2014
  • As a result, Maersk Line, Limited will move the Maersk California, which is currently covering ports in the Persian Gulf, to the Mediterranean as the new US Flag Anatolia feeder
  • As the Maersk California moves to the Mediterranean, ports in the Persian Gulf will be covered by the US Flag Marstan, which is operated through a vessel sharing agreement established with APL
  • The Marstan came into service on June 15, 2014, from Jebel Ali
  • Maersk will continue to provide Priority One (P1) US Flag service for both the Mediterranean and Persian Gulf ports, and there should be no disruption in to the current on time service delivery we are providing the US Government today
  • We are working to have these changes reflected in the IBS system as soon as possible
  • As always, should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us
