·       A total of 26 mainline services, complemented by a global network of dedicated shuttles operating in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and the Gulf of Mexico.

While the 2M Alliance remains a highly reliable network for East-West trades until January 2025, Maersk assures its valued customers of a smooth transition to the Gemini network following the conclusion of the alliance. The company anticipates continued collaboration with MSC during this period and looks forward to sharing updates on the new network, including the vessel schedule, throughout the year.
