French container line CMA CGM is adding a call to the South Turkish port of Iskenderun to its Bosphorus Express Line (BEX), starting June 16.
CMA CGM says that this is the only service on the market joining Asia to Iskenderun.
By adding a call at Iskenderun, the south part of Turkey will now be called directly and each week by CMA CGM’s vessels sailing the BEX service.
Turkey’s second largest industrial area after Istanbul is located in the south of the country. CMA CGM hopes to benefit from the port of Iskenderun’s complete offer that will provide dry and reefer containers storage and rail and road infrastructures to and from the port.
