CMA CGM Launches New Services in Oceania, African Trades
By: CMA CGM Group February 13, 2014
The CMA CGM Group is upgrading its container-carrying offerings between Oceania and the U.S., with the March, 2014 launching of the PAD 2 service.
It will complement the carrier's existing fortnightly PAD 1 service. CMA CGM will provide weekly services to and from Australia and New Zealand, Central and South America, the Caribbean, East Coast of North America and Canada. PAD 2 will also make direct calls in New Zealand's North and South Islands, providing greater reefer capacity. CMA-CGM has also expanded its service in Southern Africa, with the launch of the Rhino Express feeder. The new service offers extended coverage of five ports in Mozambique, including new calls at Quelimane and Pemba; development of cabotage in Mozambique; improved transit time from India, the Middle East, Europe and the South American east coast to Maputo and Beira; and a direct connection between Mozambique and Durban.
