CMA CGM and Seatrade launch new vessel-sharing agreement

CMA CGM Group, a container shipper, and Seatrade have announced a collaboration to create a new vessel-sharing agreement incorporating the  services known by CMA CGM as PAD and by Seatrade as MERIDIAN. 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 and is planned to be launched in October 2017.

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,
  • Kingston 
  • Philadelphia 
  • Zeebrugge  
This new line will be the only one in the market to offer such coverage on a weekly basis. It will:
  • 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
  • Offer stops in Peru, which will include a very short transit time to supply fruits to the United  States and Europe
  • Improve the supply of transport between Australia and the United States
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.
