Maersk starts its Krishnapatnam Service from April 17th and Kattupalli on April 19th, 2016. Both these calls are strategic and are aimed at supporting the growth of local businesses in the hinterland covering Andhra Pradesh, Northern Tamil Nadu and Eastern Karnataka.

Commenting on this announcement, Mr. Franck Dedenis, Managing Director, Maersk Line (India and Bangladesh Cluster) said, “Our decision to call on these ports reiterates Maersk Line’s commitment in bringing value to our customers. Both these calls will enable us to be closer to our customers. We are here for the long haul and want to grow profitably with the market. These calls will result in faster transit times for our customers in these areas, thus reaching out to a global market place in a
cost-effective manner.”

These calls to Krishnapatnam and Kattupalli will help Maersk Line leverage port efficiencies and reduced transportation time.

Maersk Line services at Krishnapatnam port effective 17th April will include the following:

(A) This service coupled with the Chennai Express which has been calling Krishnapatnam for almost two years will aid its customers with a global footprint.

(B) This service will emphasize on space availability and faster transit time.

(C) Faster transit time and weekly fixed cut off: Through this call, Maersk Line will connect customers to ports in almost all West bound markets including North America and Europe. A faster transit time along with a weekly fixed cut off will ensure a smooth supply chain for customers.
