Adjustments to the OC1 service
Due to ongoing delays, we have decided to take further action on the OC1 Service to reestablish schedule reliability. Further to the earlier changes announced during July, we will be omitting the port of Cartagena – Sociedad Portuaria Regi on the southbound voyage until further notice. The first vessel to omit Cartagena southbound is Oluf Maersk voyage 135S on September 16th. We will still be offering a northbound call, as per below revised rotation.
The updated OC1 rotation will therefore be as follow: Philadelphia > Charleston > Cartagena* > Panama Canal > Balboa > Tauranga > Sydney > Melbourne > Timaru* > Port Chalmers** > Napier** > Tauranga > Panama Canal > Manzanillo > Cristobal > Cartagena > Philadephia.
*Cartagena and Timaru omission until further notice.
**Alternate omission between Port Chalmers and Napier until further notice.
We will continue to serve Cartagena southbound via Manzanillo, Panama, and rail the units to connect the cargo from Balboa, Panama, directly in future weeks.
At Maersk we remain committed to servicing our customers’ needs in Latin America and Oceania. We will continue to review opportunities to minimize overall impact on our Ocean Network to enable trade between these regions.
