MSC and Maersk Line have decided to switch the string from Felixstowe, owing to ongoing problems and delays at the Suffolk-based port. South Korea’s Hyundai Merchant Marine also loads cargo on the ships


In a customer advisory note, Maersk said: “We hope that with this change you [our customers] will experience a reduced number of schedule changes and unexpected disruptions, while enjoying the usual service level provided by Maersk. The first vessel to call at London Gateway will be MAERSK MCKINNEY MOLLER which is due to arrive on November 27.”

For London Gateway the new Asia/Europe service will increase its presence in the all-important Asia/Europe/Asia trade as it will complement THE alliance’s FE3 string, which has been calling at the port since May 2017.


It will also generate a substantial volume of additional cargo for the port and it will mean London Gateway comfortably handling well over 1M TEU in 2018. This is a reasonable achievement in the five years that it has been open.


The AE7 service deploys 11 ships in the 9,500 TEU to 17,500 TEU range and its full and revised rotation will comprise direct calls at Qingdao, Ningbo, Shanghai, Yantian, Port Tanjung Pelapas, Port Said East, Hamburg, Bremerhaven, Antwerp, London Gateway, Le Havre, Port Tanger Med, Salalah, Jebel Ali, Yantian and return to Qingdao.
