    Maersk, the world's largest container shipping company, will test the Arctic waterway for the first time, which is expected by the entire shipping industry. It is reported that the Arctic route is shorter and saves money compared to the Suez Canal route, which is expected to save about 30% of the sailing time.
The Maersk Group said on Tuesday that the company plans to launch an Arctic flight test at the end of this month. The first container ship "Venta Maersk" will travel from East Asia to the European Sea via the Arctic Sea, hoping to develop a more time-saving route than the Suez Canal.

    It is understood that the Arctic channel is divided into the northeast channel, the northwest channel and the north pole point channel.
  The northeast channel starts from northern Europe and runs eastward through the Barents Sea, the Novosibirsk Sea, and the Chukchi Sea in the Arctic Ocean to the Bering Strait.
  The Northwest Passage starts from the Bering Strait and heads east along the offshore waters of northern Alaska, across the Canadian Arctic Islands, to the Davis Strait.
