CMA CGM, a leading worldwide shipping Group, is pleased to announce the launch of the new Baltic Levant Express service, starting May, 9th. Unique and innovative, it offers a direct connection between Saint Petersburg and the Eastern Mediterranean region and provides some of the market’s best transit times.
A service dedicated to the Northern Europe – Eastern Mediterranean trade.
Thanks to this new service, CMA CGM links four major Northern European ports (Hamburg, Rotterdam, Antwerp and le Havre) to Beirut and to the other main Eastern Mediterranean ports (Alexandria, Mersin and Aliaga). Beirut is directly linked from le Havre in only 11 days.
· A competitive offer for Beirut exports towards West Africa, North Europe, North America and South America
From Beirut, the calls at Tangiers and Valencia will connect the various services of the company saving in most cases one transshipment against what is offered today.
A global service offering transshipment opportunities towards worldwide markets.
Thanks to transshipment connections offered with other Group’s services in Valencia and Tangiers, West African, North American and South American markets are connected to Beirut and the Eastern Mediterranean region with transit times shortened by a week and a single transshipment.
Six 1,750 to 1,850 TEU-capacity vessels will operate the following rotation: Saint Petersburg, Hamburg, Rotterdam, Antwerp, Le Havre, Malta, Alexandria, Beirut, Mersin, Aliaga, Valencia, Cartagena, Tangiers, Tillbury, Antwerp, Rotterdam, Saint Petersburg.
