CMA CGM’s winter program on the Asia to Mexico, Central America and South America West Coast trade
In order to rationalize the supply in the trade, CMA CGM has decided to implement some changes in its service coverage on the Asia to Mexico, Central America and South America West Coast trade.
CMA CGM has decided to suspend its ACSA 3 service until May 2014. MV CSAV PIRQUE, voyage LS283E, ETD Shanghai on November 28th, 2013, will be the last vessel to leave Asia.
Meanwhile in order to maintain service level to its customers and to adapt capacity to trade’s volumes, CMA CGM launches a new fixed-day weekly, the ACSA 5 service.
The new ACSA 5 starts with MV MONTE SERMIENTO from Shanghai on December 3rd, 2013. It is operated along the following schedule: Busan (Tue) – Shanghai (Thu) – Ningbo (Sat) – Xiamen (Mon) – Hong Kong (Wed) – Yantian (Thu) – Busan (Mon) – Lazaro Cardenas (Fri) – Manzanillo, Mexico (Sat) – Rodman (Thu) – Balboa (Fri) – Buenaventura (Sat) – Valparaiso (Fri) – Balboa (Mon) - Manzanillo, Mexico (Sat) - Busan.
ACSA 1 service remains unchanged.
Consequently, capacity will be adjusted to trade’s volumes during this winter program. CMA CGM will maintain its existing frequency with 2 sailings per week and further improve its service level on some key corridors.
