CMA CGM announces new Asia southern Red Sea express service


French shipper CMA CGM has announced a new transport route in attempt to broaden market coverage in the Red Sea region.

The new Asia Southern Red Sea Express (REX3) is a new fixed-weekly service set to begin on May 8th, 2014.

The new route has been developed through a vessel sharing agreement with United Arab Emirates-based USAC and China Shipping Container Lines (CSCL) and hopes to benefit Red Sea exporters by massively minimising transit times between ports in Asia and the Red Sea.

It is hoped the new service will work in tandem with the pre-existing Asia Northern Red Sea Express (REX2) route, therefore improving coverage to meet growing customer demand in the Red Sea market.

The new REX3 port rotation is as follows: Xiamen – Yantian – Shekou – Port Kelang – Djibouti – Jeddah– Port Sudan – Djibouti – Port Kelang – Xiamen.
