Auther - Creating synergies to serve you better Enter Date - 2013-06-26

Dear Customer,


At Maersk Line, we believe that customers are
at the centre of what we do and we value their loyalty. Keeping this is mind,
we are happy to announce the launch of the new P3 network – an alliance between
Maersk Line, CMA & MSC, serving the Asia – Europe, Transpacific and
Transatlantic trades.


This alliance has been formed purely from the
perspective of providing our customers with the best possible products and
services while at the same time keeping the business sustainable for us on
these trade lanes. It is an operational
alliance where the backend operations for the P3 services will be handled by a
separate legal entity by the name of JVOC – Joint Vessel Operating Centre
The commercial aspects of the business will remain separate and under the
purview of the individual shipping lines.


While the impact on the services from the
Indian subcontinent is minimal, our services from South & East of India via
Tanjung Pelapas and from Colombo, Sri Lanka will greatly benefit from this
alliance. To further elaborate on the benefits that you could derive from this


Unprecedented Frequency: Increased number of sailings with more than one
departure per week allowing you increased flexibility in planning your supply


Wider Coverage: Increase in the number of port calls opening up
a plethora of opportunities for you to expand your business


Increased Stability: Increase in Operational Efficiency at the
terminal to mitigate the impact of blanked sailings


Increased Flexibility: With increased number of sailings, frequent
departures and a much wider geographical coverage the world is your oyster and
you will be able to maximize on new business potential faster than you could in
the past


The P3 is scheduled to be formalized only by
the first quarter of 2014, and will have 255 vessels and a total capacity of
2.6 million TEUs. Maersk Line will contribute 1.1.million with a capacity ratio
of 42%.


We look forward to your support and hope that
you will greatly benefit from this arrangement. Should you need more
information on this alliance, please do feel free to get in touch with your
local sales and customer service representatives.


Best Regards,

Maersk Line
