CMA CGM Upgrades Oceania PAD Service
The CMA CGM Group has confirmed that its PAD service will become weekly, starting January 4, 2018.
The service will link Northern Europe, the East Coast of the United States, Central America, the Pacific Islands, Australia and New Zealand.
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 4, 2018 is subject to validation by the competent authorities.
By making its PAD service a weekly offer, the CMA CGM Group said it 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 31, 2017.
