Maersk Line expands online platform service scope
Maersk Line takes further steps towards simplifying the supply chains of its customers by expanding the service scope on its online platform ship.maerskline.com to cover more major trades and addressing customers' pain points, the company said in its press release.
The new scope on the platform will cover customers exporting from ports of Shanghai and Ningbo in Eastern China and Qingdao in North China, to all Mediterranean destinations; expanding from the current three Northern China ports (Qingdao, Xingang and Dalian) to West Africa, South Africa and East Coast South America. The offering will be available for customers located in China, placing bookings either directly or through a booking agent.
Maersk Line expanded the service scope to more trades, echoing the customers' positive feedback on the platform. Booking cancellations and no shows have been a challenge for the shipping industry for years. With the new online model, Maersk Line aims to reduce downfalls through customer commitment via a no-show payment.
Ship.maerskline.com is a Maersk Line owned, online platform launched last November, offering instant booking solutions on different trade lanes with select origins and destinations. It is an initiative to support Maersk's global digital transformation journey.
