TNWA - CMA CGM expands coverage of SAX service

TNWA - CMA CGM expands coverage of SAX service

Shanghai: The existing Asia-Panama-US East Coast SAX Service jointly operated by the New World Alliance (consisting of MOL, APL, HMM)  and CMA CGM has been redesigned to include calls in Balboa (Panama Eastbound and Westbound) as well as Jacksonville (Florida Eastbound).

The SAX Service is now deploying eight 3800teu vessels (of which five are operated by TNWA and three by CMA CGM) on the following rotation: Ningbo, Shanghai, Chiwan, Hong Kong, Balboa, Manzanillo, Jacksonville, Savannah, New York, Norfolk, Balboa, Ningbo.

In Balboa, the SAX Service connects with the dedicated ANDEX Service, solely operated by CMA CGM, offering destinations out of Asia and out of the US East Coast to the West Coast of South America. The ANDEX service calls at: Buenaventura, Colombia - Guayaquil, Ecuador - Iquique, Chili - Callao, Peru - Puerto Caldera, Costa Rica.

CMA CGM ANDEX Service will also provide weekly sailings out of the West Coast of South America to the US East Coast and Asia.

The first call in Balboa Eastbound will take place on June 26, 2008 and Westbound on July 10, 2008.

The Asia-US East Coast SAX All Water Service is also introducing an additional call at Jacksonville, Florida, as from July 7, 2008, the new gateway into North Florida, right before Savannah.

This will complement CMA CGM PEX Service, which calls weekly at Miami and Savannah.  [10/06/08]
