- NEW YORK, SAVANNAH, MIAMI
- PAPEETE, NOUMEA

The only service on the market to offer such coverage on a weekly basis:

- Strengthen the CMA CGM Group’s offer on the Transatlantic service
13 ships with a nominal capacity between 2,200 and 2,500 TEUs (Twenty-foot Equivalent Unit) will be deployed on this weekly service. Each will have about 600 Reefers on board, necessary to transport refrigerated goods such as fruits, meat or dairy products.
The upgrade to a weekly service starting January 4th, 2018 is subject to validation by the competent authorities.
By making its PAD service a weekly offer, the CMA CGM Group continues its development strategy in Oceania and in the Pacific with the completion of the acquisition of SOFRANA Unilines, through its subsidiary ANL, on October 31st, 2017.
