Diversion requests must be submitted using this form.  Please note that any diversion is subject to operational feasibility and approval, and may take up to 72 hours to process.  For waybills, the requester must be a party to Maersk Line’s Transport Document and shipper retains right of control until delivery.  For Negotiable transport documents, only the lawful BL holder that is party to the contract of carriage has the right to request a diversion.  Please refer to requester’s warranties below.

  • All Freight charges are subject to contract filed; Maersk line tariff rates will be applicable if the new requested destination is not covered in the service contract(s).
  • While Maersk Line will make every attempt to accommodate the requester’s change in destination, the request CANNOT BE GUARANTEED. The status of the request may change at any time because of various operational and other considerations.
  • Diversions of 20’ containers may require additional container (mate) to move to inland destinations.  Maersk Line will quote total cost (cost of move + cost for additional container) in these instances.  If it is found that additional container is not required for inland movement these charges will be adjusted. 
  • Once the Diversion is confirmed, please send a revised Delivery order todeliveryorder@maersk.com - if applicable
