VIETNAM – French container shipping line CMA CGM have revised their FAL 3 service to include the new deepwater port of Cai Mep. The route which utilises ten vessels ranging from 8,500 to 9,500 TEU capacity will call Westbound whilst continuing to serve North, South and Central China. The latest direct call will commence with the Asia – Northern Europe service from 9th November.

The complete FAL 3 rotation, lasting in total seventy days, will then be as follows:

Qingdao-Ningbo- Chiwan- Nansha- Yantian- Cai Mep- Port Kelang- Malta- Le Havre- Dunkirk- Zeebrugge- Hamburg- Rotterdam- Zeebrugge- Southampton- Beirut- Jeddah- Port Kelang- Qingdao.

CMA CGM will henceforth be offering shippers a selection of the largest box vessels calling at Vietnam and dedicated feeder services will serve the smaller secondary ports of Haiphong, Danang and Qui Nhon to support the business growth of its clients on the Vietnamese market.

Nicolas Sartini, Senior Vice President Asia-Europe Lines said the company was particularly proud to be the first to deploy large vessels calling directly at Cai Mep. The latest addition brings the number of CMA CGM weekly services between Asia and Northern Europe to ten with two hundred and sixty direct port combinations.
