The Medgulf service will offer weekly sailings from the Mediterranean to the U.S. Gulf and Caribbean, with a direct rotation from Houston to Tangiers, and what the line claims is the best transit time from Mexico and Houston to Spain and Italy. CMA CGM is already operating the Amerigo service between the Mediterranean and U.S. East Coast. The group is also upgrading its Gulfbridge service between the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean area, decreasing transit times to Colombia. The line will deploy vessels of 2,500 twenty-foot equivalent units in the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and east and west coasts of South America, through its Kingston transshipment operation. Beginning in May, call frequencies in CMA CGM's Hispaniola service will be increased, with main ports called weekly. In another company development, the CMA CGM Group has launched its first mobile application, offering real-time data tracking of containers, vessel departures and other services. The tool is available on the App Store and Google Play in five languages. Users will be able to follow loading operations, search for routes and consult vessel schedules.
