- The ports of Castries ( Saint Lucia ), Port of Spain ( Trinidad and Tobago ), El Guamache ( Venezuela ) and Oranjestad ( Aruba ) will now be serviced through transhipment onto other CMA CGM Group services:
§ Goods to and from Castries will be carried on the CAGEMA Inter Island feeder service, via Vieux Fort.
§ Goods to and from Port of Spain ( Trinidad and Tobago ) will be transferred at the dedicated Kingston hub to loop 2 of the PEX 2 service (linking Asia, Mexico , the Caribbean and North Brazil )
