CMA CGM is pleased to announce the upgrading of its Victory Bridge service linking North Europe to US South Atlantic, Mexico and the US Gulf.
Operated in partnership with CSAV, this new service will replace the one previously operated in cooperation with MSC and will deploy five vessels of 3,000 teus (3 x CMA CGM, 2 x CSAV).
This new joint service will strengthen CMA CGM’s presence on both trades between North Europe to the US and North Europe to Mexico, providing customers with:
• The most direct route and fastest transits of the market from South Florida to North Europe,
• 2 weekly sailings between Mexico & North Europe with fast transit times,
• An extra call in Rotterdam to meet North European exporters as well as reefer importers needs,
• Exhaustive and efficient port coverage on these key transatlantic trade lanes.
The rotation will be as follows:
Le Havre - Antwerp - Rotterdam - Bremerhaven - Charleston - Miami - Vera Cruz - Altamira - Houston - Miami - Le Havre
The ports of Savannah, and Felixstowe called in the previous rotation, will continue to be served through CMA CGM’s Round The World and Liberty Bridge services.
“The Victory Bridge service has been running according to market expectations for many years, providing CMA CGM’s customers with reliable and regular schedules. This enhanced service will deliver even more value for our customers providing them with fast transit times for refrigerated and dry cargo as well as improved capacity to support their development on the growing markets between North Europe, the US and Mexico” explains Jean-Philippe Thenoz, Senior Vice President North America Lines, CMA CGM Group.
This new Victory Bridge service is due to start in October 2010.
