Ocean carrier Maersk Line said it will end its Oceania PSW service
, between Los Angeles, Oakland, Australia, New Zealand and the Fiji Islands.
The company said in note to customers
that it "remains committed to serving the trade. We will replace the 'PSW' service with use of our existing reliable Pacific network, connecting with Oceania through our transshipment hubs in Asia."
It said the last southbound sailing of the Oceania PSW service will leave Los Angeles on March 31, and the last northbound voyage will leave Tauranga in New Zealand on April 21.
According to BlueWater Reporting, Maersk does not provide any of the vessels to the string, whose other participants include Alianca, ANL, CMA CGM, Hamburg Süd, Hapag Lloyd, MSC and U.S. Lines. - Chris Dupin
