CMA CGM increases South American presence

CMA CGM has added two services linking the East Coast of South America (ECSA) with Northern Europe and the Mediterranean.

The Safran service for Northern Europe will begin its journey leaving Rotterdam in late September, heading to nearby ports and then Algeciras.

After that, it will call at Santos, Paranagua, Buenos Aires, Montevideo and  Itapoa before heading back to Tangier via Pecem.

According to the French carrier, calling at the Port of Pecem allows it to offer a new option to those already existing in Northern Brazil during the fruit season.

Meanwhile, the Sirius service for the Mediterranean will start in Malta in early October, heading to Genoa and three Spanish ports.

It will then call at Salvador, Itaguai, Santos, Itapoa, Buenos Aires and Rio Grande before making the return journey to Algeciras.

The Marseille-based shipping line will supply three of the eight ships on the Sirius service.
