The weekly service will turn around in 49 days offering port coverage in Asia and New Zealand and including a call in Australia en route from Asia. The full port rotation will be as follows:

New Joint Asia-Australia Service Starts in November

The new service will be operated with 7 vessels of 4,250 TEU nominal capacities, of which three vessels will be provided by CMA CGM, two vessels by OOCL and one vessel each by CSCL and PIL, while ANL will remain slot charterer. The new service will be replacing the current “ANZEX” / “NZN” service operated by CMA CGM and OOCL.

Xavier Eiglier, CMA CGM Vice President Antilles-Guyane and Indian Ocean, Oceania Lines, said:

“The reshaped rotation in Asia will not only focus on Central and North East Asia, but will also improve our offer from South East Asia on the southbound leg.

While we are adding a call in Australia, contributing to a healthy growth for CMA CGM on the Asia-Australia trade, we will retake the five ports in the New Zealand that have been covered by the current ANZEX so far, reaffirming our willingness and commitment to provide a wide and serious offer to our valuable shippers with a fast and direct service between New Zealand and the Far East.”
