CMA CGM launching direct service linking Morocco & Algeria to the Black Sea
CMA CGM is launching the Black Sea Med Express service on August 21, 2017, which connects the major countries around the Black Sea (Turkey, Romania and Ukraine) to Algeria and Morocco.
The CMA CGM Group is innovating and growing in the Mediterranean by launching this service, created specifically to respond to the increase in trade between the Black Sea countries, Turkey, Algeria and Morocco.
It is the first service of CMA CGM to offer a weekly connection between the main ports of the Black and Aegean seas with the North of Morocco (Tangier and Casablanca) and Algeria (Annaba) in order to develop the activity between the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea with short lines.
It is a global service offering multiple service possibilities to the countries of Southern Eastern Europe and transhipment to world markets, said a release.
CMA CGM offers some of the best transit times: Constanta is connected to Casablanca (Morocco) in 16 days, Ambarli (Turkey) to Annaba (Algeria) in 6 days, Malta to Odessa (Ukraine) in 4 days, and Izmir (Turkey) to Malta in 2 days.
The proposed stopover in Malta, the CMA CGM hub, affects all of the world’s markets and offers multiple opportunities for transhipment and intermodal transport, thanks to efficient connections with other Group services.
The Black Sea Med Express service will begin on August 21 in Malta with a fleet of four vessels with capacity of 1,700 TEUs, which will operate in Casablanca, Tangier, Malta, Odessa, Constanta, Ambarli, Izmir, Malta and Annaba, the release added.
