CMA CGM's CNC implements provinces feeder service linking Japan and South Korea

CNC, CMA CGM’s intra-Asian short-sea specialist, and the Kochi Prefecture Government’s Department of Public Works have introduced the Nine Provinces Feeder (NPF) service at the Port of Kochi in Japan.

The feeder service connects Kochi and Busan in three days. Export containers from Japan will be delivered from Busan to locations across Asia via CNC’s service network and globally via CMA CGM’s shipping services.

The weekly NPF connects the Ports of Japan and Korea with a service rotation of:

Busan – Hakata – Shibushi – Hososhima – Kochi – Oita – Moji – Hakata – Busan

Hideki Uchida, President of CMA CGM Japan, said: “CNC’s NPF service will be synonymous with efficiency, fast transit time and access to market connectivity which are highly valued by our customers in Kochi.”

Seiji Hamada, Governor of Kochi Prefecture stated: “We are thrilled that CNC has launched NPF as a regular service to the Kochi Prefecture.

“The new shipping service will connect Kochi to Korea where we will also gain access in Asia and to Europe, the United States, Oceania, and other locations around the world via the global shipping network of the CMA CGM Group.”

In June 2023, CMA CGM introduced its new seasonal weekly service Turkey Libya Express (TLX) connecting Asia with Turkey, Libya and Red Sea.

More recently, CMA CGM agreed to adjust the Peak Season Surcharge (PSS) from India’s West Coast to South America’s East Coast.
