CMA CGM to enhance ACSA service from April

CMA CGM to enhance ACSA service from April

Hong Kong: CMA CGM will upgrade and reinforce its ACSA service linking Asia to Mexico, Central America and the West Coast of South America with the first rotation scheduled to start at the end of April 2011.

The French line expects the new configuration to consolidate its presence in the regions and swiften transit times. Transit times Chile and Hong Kong can be reduced by seven days and Mexico and Shanghai by nine days. There will be new westbound calls to Yokohama, Japan and Keelung, Taiwan to meet the growing demand for refrigerated goods from Mexico and South America to Asia.

"With this new configuration, CMA CGM will provide a significantly upgraded service with the introduction of 6,500 TEUs containerships... but also improved transit times for the transport of refrigerated goods particularly sensitive to travel times," said Jean-Yves Duval, director central and South America Caribbean lines, CMA CGM.
