CMA CGM updates SIRIUS service with Rio de Janeiro call

CMA CGM updates SIRIUS service with a direct call to Rio de Janeiro

CMA CGM has announced that the SIRIUS service, connecting the Mediterranean to East Coast of South America, will extend its coverage adding a new call in the Brazilian Port of Rio de Janeiro on its southbound leg.

The first sailing Southbound from Europe will be the 7 October from Tanger Med aboard the MV Maersk Lota, arriving in Rio de Janeiro on 19 October.

The new SIRIUS rotation will be the following: 

Algeciras – Tanger Med – Salvador – Rio de Janeiro – Santos – Itapoa – Paranagua – Santos – Itaguai – Tanger Med – Algeciras

The addition of this port will not have any impact on the transit time / berth window of CMA CGM’s current schedule for the remaining Brazilian ports, according to the company’s most recent announcement.

In February 2023, CMA CGM announced changes to its services connecting Europe with the East Coast of South America.

More recently, CMA CGM SSL Intra Europe announced it will revise its BAF on its Roro South services connecting France with Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco.
