The CMA CGM Group is expanding its service opportunities in Southern Africa with the launch of the new Rhino Express feeder.

The Rhino Express reinforces the Group’s service to Mozambique through an extended coverage of five ports in Mozambique, including two new ports: Quelimane and Pemba, the development of cabotage in Mozambique, a better transit time from India, Middle East, Europe and South America East Coast to Maputo and Beira, and direct connection between Mozambique and Durban.

This feeder comes in addition of CMA CGM Mozex and Mascareignes Lines, which already called in Mozambique. 

Since December 2013, the Rhino Express is operated in the following rotation: Durban - Maputo - Beira - Quelimane - Nacala - Pemba – Maputo - Durban.

Mathieu Friedberg, Senior Vice President African Lines CMA CGM, explained, “This new service allows providing a faster and reliable connection for all cargo from Europe, the Mediterranean, India, Middle East Gulf and South America, while opening the opportunity to develop cabotage in Mozambique.”
