CMA CGM Upgrades Service, North Europe, South Atlantic, Mexico and the Gulf

Monday, October 18, 2010

CMA CGM announced the launch of its New Victory Bridge service linking North Europe to U.S. South Atlantic, Mexico and the U.S. Gulf, effective October 17, 2010.
 
Launched in partnership with CSAV, this service previously operated in cooperation with MSC will deploy five vessels of 3,000 teus (3 x CMA CGM, 2 x CSAV) and strengthen the presence of CMA CGM on the North Europe / Mexico / United States trade thanks to the following developments:
 
•           An attractive port coverage with new calls in Rotterdam and Miami,
 
•          The shortest transit times on the market both Eastbound and Westbound between North Europe and Mexico (Altamira / Antwerp in 16 days against 21 previously) and between North Europe and US South Atlantic (both Bremerhaven / Charleston and Miami / Le Havre in 9 days),
 
•          An optimal coverage of the Mexican market and two weekly departures from Mexico, allowing the Group to respond to the dynamism of trade from North Europe and the growing demand for refrigerated goods toward this market.
 
The rotation of the New Victory Bridge service will be as follows: Le Havre - Antwerp - Rotterdam - Bremerhaven - Charleston - Miami - Vera Cruz - Altamira - Houston - Miami - Le Havre.
 
The ports of Savannah and Felixstowe, included in the previous rotation, will now be served through CMA CGM’s Round The World and Liberty Bridge services.
