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.
