French container shipping major CMA CGM has upgraded its coverage between the Adriatic Sea and Egypt by introducing the new Adrimed Express service.
The Adrimed Express service links Egypt, Malta, Croatia, Italy, and Slovenia.
“Thanks to a call in Malta, a CMA CGM group’s hub, efficient transshipment connections are offered to worldwide markets. This service, which is especially designed for perishable goods transportation in reefer containers, offers the best transit times on the market between the Adriatic Sea and Egypt,” CMA CGM said.
The service links Alexandria Old Port in Egypt to Rijeka in Croatia in 6 days, Trieste in Italy in 7 days, and Koper in Slovenia in 9 days.
From the Adriatic Sea to Egypt, CMA CGM calls Damietta in 7 days from Koper, 9 from Trieste, and 10 from Rijeka.
The company said that three 2,800 to 3,500 TEU boxships are deployed in the service.
Port rotation of the Adrimed Express service is as follows: Rijeka (Croatia), Trieste, Venice (Italy), Koper (Slovenia), Malta (Malta), Damietta, Alexandria (Egypt), Malta and Rijeka.
