This service will link Northern Europe, the East Coast of the United States, Central America, the Pacific Islands, Australia, New Zealand, Peru and the Caribbean on a weekly basis.

This new service brings together CMA CGM, SEATRADE and MARFRET and improves their frequency and port coverage.

13 modern geared ships with a nominal capacity between 2200 and 2500 TEUs will be deployed on this new line (6 CMA CGM, 6 SEATRADE and 1 MARFRET). Each will have minimum 600 Reefers on board necessary to transport refrigerated goods such as fruits or meat.

In particular, this new line is expected to:

  • Provide a direct and weekly service to Papeete and Noumea from Northern Europe and the East Coast of the United States,
  • Provide the only fast, direct, dedicated reefer service from New Zealand to the United States and Europe,
  • Improve the supply of transport between Australia and the United States,
  • Offer stops in Peru, which will include a very short transit time to supply fruits to the United States and Europe.

The weekly service will have the following rotation:

  • Zeebrugge, London Gateway, Rotterdam, Dunkerque, Le Havre,
  • New York, Savannah,
  • Kingston, Cartagena,
  • Papeete, Noumea
  • Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne
  • Nelson, Napier, Tauranga
  • Pisco, Paita,

The launch of the service is scheduled in October 2017, subject to validation by the competent authorities.
