After the temporary withdrawal in 2009, Maersk Line will yet again serve the market with a dedicated product for the Mediterranean - Middle East/India trade. While offering best in class transit times, the new ME3 is designed for direct Turkey coverage with a direct call in Ambarli.
ME3 rotation is as follows:
