Transatlantic Service – Maersk Montana

We would like to inform you that the vessel Maersk Montana will call the port of Miami. All other Transatlantic (TA1) vessels will call Port Everglades instead of Miami.


  • ETS Antwerp: 21.08.2017
  • ETS Rotterdam: 22.08.2017
  • ETS Bremerhaven: 24.08.2017
  • ETA Miami: 06.09.2017

The one off change enables us to recover schedule as part of the Labor Day contingency in USA. By changing port of call we can ensure on time departure and avoid delays on the route to Europe. Please note this is one off change and TA1 service will continue calling Port Everglades as communicated previously.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused and thank you for your continued support. If you need any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact your local Customer Service representative.

Thank you,

Maersk Line, Limited
