Yesterday, we reported that shippers have called for faster and more reliable deepsea services – and for that they would be prepared to pay a premium. But The Loadstar also noted that Maersk had nevertheless dropped its Daily Maersk premium service.

Shippers have not been putting their money where their mouth is.
