The CMA CGM Group announced a new cooperation setup with current partner Maersk Line, APL and OOCL on three existing Far East to Indian Subcontinent services (CIMEX 2/FM3, CIX, CIX3), starting in February 2014.

In a Slot Sharing Agreement that also includes partners as Emirates Shipping Line, Hamburg Süd and Regional Container Lines, 18 vessels with a total capacity of about 17,500 TEU’s will be deployed on the three Far East-Indian Subcontinent services.

This enhanced network will enable the group to offer three sailings per week - covering Korea, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, India and Pakistan - compared to one weekly sailing that is currently offered by each Liner.

The multicarrier cooperation will provide more frequent sailings between Asia’s major hubs and will minimize routes duplication on this trade.

The enhanced Far East-Indian Subcontinent services with improved operational efficiency and a more consistent service set up - will enable the CMA CGM Group to offer fast transit times with flexible and competitive options.   

CIMEX 2 service will be upgraded as follows:

CIMEX 2-N (“North Loop” to be operated by CMA CGM and Maersk Line)
Tianjin – Dalian – Qingdao – Kwangyang – Busan – Ningbo – Hong Kong – Singapore – Tanjung Pelepas – Colombo – Pipavav – Nhava Sheva – Port Qasim – Singapore – Tianjin
