More joint routes for CMA CGM and Hamburg Sud

[ February 5, 2015   //   ]

CMA CGM and Hamburg Süd are to widen their existing cooperation to include a new pendulum service between Asia, the Caribbean, the US East Coast and North Europe, together with United Arab Shipping Company (UASC) on the transatlantic leg. For details will be made available soon. The new service will be complementing the existing one between the US East Coast via Suez.

CMA and Hamburg Süd already run joint services between North Europe and both East and West coasts of South America and, since mid-January, Hamburg Süd is taking slots between Asia and the Caribbean on CMA CGM’s PEX 2 service.

The two lines have agreed to explore other cooperation opportunities when they arise.

CMA CGM vice chairman Rodolphe Saadé said the agreement would reinforce the line’s position in South and North America.
