CSAV South America service calls Khorfakkan

CSAV South America service calls Khorfakkan

Sharjah: Gulftainer reports that the maiden call of the 1700 TEU 'Santa Maddalena' at Khorfakkan last week (pictured) marked a welcome return for CSAV services at its flagship terminal.
The Santiago-headquartered carrier has joined with CMA-CGM and now provides three of the eight ships operating on the joint service giving a weekly frequency to customers on the key service corridors from east coast South America to the Middle East. Transit times have also been improved with, for example, Rio Grande to Khorfakkan now only 24 days.
Gulftainer director and general manager Peter Richards commented "We are really happy to see CSAV ships once again at Khorfakkan - and we will certainly ensure that they receive the fast, cost effective and efficient service for which the terminal is justly renowned."
The Santa Maddalena berthed promptly on arrival on December 4 and terminal operations proceeded quickly and smoothly allowing the ship to sail on schedule.  [11/12/07]
