Maersk faces significant port congestion in Asia, Mediterranean

OSLO, (Reuters) – Maersk faces significant terminal congestion in Mediterranean and Asian ports, causing substantial delays in its vessel schedule, the Danish shipping group said in a statement on Monday.

As a result of the congestion, the company will skip two westbound sailings from China and South Korea that had been planned to depart in early July, it added.
