CMA CGM adds new call at Rotterdam
With the arrival of 13,800TEU vessels in its fleet, CMA CGM has announced a new addition to its FAL5 (French-Asia Line) service.
This new service launched last July extended CMA CGM’s offer on the Asia-Europe trade. It
deploys an homogeneous fleet of ten ships of 13,800TEU, including ‘Christophe Colomb’, ‘Magellan’, ‘Laperouse’, ‘Corte Real’ and ‘Amerigo Vespucci’.
“With a new call in Rotterdam (westbound), starting November 6, the FAL5 will offer faster transit times between Asia and both Le Havre and Rotterdam with delivery times respectively improved by two and five days, linking Port
Kelang to Le Havre in 17 days (instead of 19 previously) and Yantian to Rotterdam in only 25 days (instead of 30 days previously),” said CMA CGM in a statement.
The new FAL5 70-day rotation will be as follows: ? Ningbo – Shanghai – Yantian - Tanjung Pelepas - Port
Kelang - Le Havre - Rotterdam (import) – Hamburg - Rotterdam (export) - Zeebrugge - Port
Kelang – Singapore - Ningbo.
"To meet a strong demand, we decided to add a call at Rotterdam for import cargo.
This new improvement will reinforce this major service launched last July, that deploys the largest vessels of the market", said Nicolas Sartini, Senior Vice President Asia-Europe Lines. (source: Baird Maritime)
