The CMA CGM Group has announced the extension of its French Asia Line 1 (FAL) service into Poland, with a direct call to Gdansk.
The first Westbound voyage from Asia will depart from Busan, South Korea on 10 August with its MV CMA CGM Jacques Saade, arriving in Gdansk on 5 October.
The new FAL 1 rotation will be the following:
Busan – Ningbo – Shanghai – Yantian – Singapore – Algeciras (1/2) – Tanger Med (1/2) – Dunkirk – Le Havre – Hamburg – Gdansk – Rotterdam – Algeciras – Port Klang – Busan
CMA CGM will now provide two complementing direct trips from Asia to Gdansk, FAL 1 and FAL 5.
According to CMA CGM, FAL 1 will provide a one-of-a-kind direct service from South Korea to Poland, allowing for extra capacity for project cargo as well as access to the Baltic through Gdansk.
FAL 1 follows the company’s efforts to reduce its environmental footprint by sailing aboard liquefied natural gas (LNG) ships.
