Maersk suspends service to three Japanese ports

The world’s biggest container shipping line, Maersk, has suspended services to and from three Japanese ports.

While there are no commercial restrictions in booking with Maersk Line to or via Japan, the carrier has suspended services to and from Sendai, Hachinohe, and Onahama, where terminal facilities and containers were seriously damaged.

While many of Japan’s ports are operating at normal capacity, the closures on Friday and Saturday resulted in congestion in the ports of Tokyo and Yokohama.

Maersk told Reuters that the there have been no reports of damages to the carrier’s yard equipment in the ports of Tokyo, Yokohama, Nagoya, Kobe, Osaka and Hakata ports.

At the moment, Maersk Line continues to serve other Japanese ports as usual, but this may be subject to changes later.
