The CMA CGM Group has signed three major agreements on Asia-Europe, Asia-Mediterranean, Transpacific and Asia-United States East Coast maritime trade.

The agreements (a combination of vessel sharing, slot exchange and slot charter) will complete the CMA CGM offering on the biggest global maritime markets:

• On the Asia-Europe trade: four weekly services, which complete the two existing services, thereby offering six departures per week;

• On the Asia-Mediterranean trade: four weekly services, two to the Mediterranean, one to the Adriatic and one to the Black Sea, the only one on this market;

• On the Transpacific: four  weekly services to California and one service to the Pacific Northwest (United States and Canada);

• On the Asia-US East Coast trade: one service via the Suez Canal and one service dedicated to the Gulf of Mexico.

• The agreements on the Transatlantic trade are being finalised and will soon be announced.

Rotations will be optimised with calls in all the biggest Asian, European and North American ports, using transshipment hubs common to the three partners.

The agreements are pending Federal Maritime Commission authorisation.
