PHOENICIAN EXPRESS service : new call in Venice
CMA CGM wishes to inform its customers that it has decided to add a direct call in Venice to its fixed-day weekly PHOENICIAN EXPRESS service connecting Far East with the Adriatic, an answer to its customers' requirements for a direct link to Venice.
This decision marks the 10th anniversary of the successful launch of the PHOENICIAN EXPRESS service in July 2003, CMA CGM being then the first carrier to establish a direct connection between the Far East and the Adriatic. It also bears testimony to CMA CGM's trust and confidence in the Italian market potential, both inbound and outbound.
Effective July 2013, the combination of the two Far East Mediterranean services, MEX3 and PHOENICIAN EXPRESS, offers weekly call in Genoa, La Spezia, Trieste and Venice which are complemented by the CMA CGM dedicated feeder services calling Salerno, Napoli, Catania, Palermo, Taranto, Ancona and Ravenna.
CMA CGM will be the only carrier offering a direct service to/from Venice to/from the Far East, the Middle East Gulf, the Red Sea and the Intra-Mediterranean trade.
The upgraded PHOENICIAN EXPRESS service will be effective with MV CMA CGM CORNEILLE Voy. BE939W, ETA Venice July 24th, 2013, and will be operated along following schedule: Venice (Wed) - Rijeka (Thu) - Trieste (Fri) - Port Said (Thu) - Jeddah (Mon) - Port Kelang (Tue) - Singapore (Thu) - Shanghai (Fri) - Busan (Mon) - Chiwan (Fri) - Hong Kong (Fri) - Tanjung Pelepas (Tue) - Beirut (Tue) - Trieste (Sat) - Koper (Mon) - Venice.
