Maersk Line optimise efficiency from various angles,
but all takes off in the fuel slot cost

Super slow
steaming
ECO Voyage is used to
optimise the voyage plan
which is then use for
dialogue between ship and
shore during execution
The guiding principle is
constant power to
minimise bunker
consumption

A Gobal Voyage Center
monitors voyage execution
24/7 and is in close dialogue
with local offices and vessels
to minimise waste

Our Network is continuously optimised to make full
use of the flexibility provided by the super slow
steaming concept
Average speed of the fleet continuously decreases
which has a significant impact on the slot cost
Trim utilization is monitored
and feedback is given based on
possible improvements

Capacity boosts and ECO Retrofit investments ensure vessels are
efficient and capability maximised to minimise slot costs
continuously.
