Introducing New US Flag Trans-Atlantic Service (TA2) – Correction

Maersk Line, Limited (MLL) is pleased to announce the new Trans-Atlantic (TA2) service, an exciting US Flag service that offers fast and reliable transits between the US East Coast and Europe.  Maersk Line’s investment in these upgrades means that now 3 out of 4 vessels in this service are US Flag. This new offering enhances our commitment to the US Flag market bringing the total number of US Flag vessels sailing between the US East and US Gulf Coasts to/from Europe up to 8 vessels.

The new TA2 service provides customers with several key benefits:

  • Direct service linking Norfolk, Baltimore and Newark to Bremerhaven, Felixstowe, Antwerp and Le Havre
  • Added US Flag departure from Norfolk to Europe to enhance the current TA1 US Flag service
  • Competitive transits across the Atlantic in a number of corridors
