Russia-Ukraine war prompts Maersk measures to contain port congestion

Posted on July 6, 2022

In a recent customer advisory, Maersk announced new congestion and contingency plans to keep customer supply chains moving as much as operationally feasible at the Port of Costanta.

The carrier has identified and implemented alternative routes around affected regions as the port has been subject to a surge of additional cargo over the past five months amidst the war in Ukraine.

Russian armed forces recently withdrew from the key outpost on Snake Island in the Black Sea and Ukraine port operations could possibly resume.

To alleviate the congestion, Maersk has decided to activate the Safiport terminal in Turkey and divert a portion of Constanta import cargo. This change is expected to impact cargo for destinations in Ukraine, Moldova, and Romania.

Strike action is rampaging through Northern Europe, adding pressure to logistics networks.
