The CMA CGM Group has launched the Wazzan Service, linking Morocco with Northwest Africa and boosting its intra-Africa coverage.

The new service improves transit time between Mauritania and Senegal by eight days, with previous transshipment links being replaced by direct ones. CMA CGM has also introduced a direct call, from Northwest Africa and to Morocco, in Las Palmas, while enhancing its refrigerated container service in Mouadhibou, Mauritania to allow for fish exports into intra African and worldwide markets.
