Maersk announces Brisbane Southbound Call on Dragon Service

In reference to the general advisory issued 6 February 2020, whereby the Australian Government introduced additional isolation and border recommendations in response to containing the COVID-19 outbreak, Maersk will be making adjustments to the Dragon service in order to improve schedule reliability whilst these requirements are in place.

Effective from the vessel Brevik Bridge 011S ETD Yokohama 10th March 2020 and ETA Brisbane 1st April 2020, the Brisbane southbound call will be omitted.

All cargo loading from Asia will remain on board and discharge in Brisbane following the Melbourne port call, resulting in 12 day delay to arrival.

The new rotation will be as follows: Yokohama – Osaka – Busan – Qingdao – Shanghai – Ningbo – Sydney – Melbourne – Brisbane – Yokohama
