CMA CGM, a leading worldwide shipping group, has announced that, starting June 16, 2015, a call in the South Turkish Port of Iskenderun will be added to the Group’s Bosphorus Express Line (BEX).
It was previously reported that CMA CGM had placed an order for around six 14,000 TEU ships with ship builder Hyundai Heavy Industries to expand on its current fleet.
In order to answer its clients’ needs, CMA CGM adapts its BEX line, joining Asia to the East Mediterranean, by adding a call in the port of Iskenderun.
The Group now offers the only direct service on the market, and the best transit times between Asia and Iskenderun.
By adding a call in Iskenderun, the South part of the country will now be called directly and each week by the Group’s vessels sailing the BEX line.
The Port of Iskenderun is located in a strategic area in the South of the country. CMA CGM is the first shipping group to have joined the Asian and Turkish strategic markets.
