CMA CGM has added another 1,700-TEU capacity ship to the six new vessels it plans for its Europe-Guyana-North Brazil service. The CGM CMA Herodote, and its sister vessels, have a special hull design that allows operators to maximize transport of goods to shallow-draft ports.
"CMA CGM was willing to invest in modern vessels which would be dedicated to this trade where the Group has a historical presence," says Nicole Chamard, director of Mediterranean/ Caribbean and Europe/Guyana, North Brazil lines. "These new vessels are larger, faster, and they have been specially designed to cope with the nautical constraints of the area. Our customers will therefore benefit from an improved quality of service, with faster transit-time, and better opportunities to expand their business in the coming years."
