CMA CGM launches PANAMA 2 (PAD 2) service

The CMA CGM Group has announced the upgrade of its Oceania – US services with the launch of the PAD 2 service.
PAD 2, due to start in March, will complement the existing fortnightly PAD 1 service and provide CMA CGM with the best coverage of the Oceania to US trade.
Using its extensive global service network, the CMA CGM Group will be able to provide weekly services to and from Australia and New Zealand, Central and South America, the Caribbean, North America (USEC) and Canada.
CMA CGM will also offer the fastest direct transit times from Australia and New Zealand to all USA ports. 
PAD 2 will have direct calls in New Zealand’s North & South Islands and will allow CMA CGM greater reefer capacity. 
As from the 4th March 2014, CMA CGM’s new PAD 2 service rotation will be as follow: 
Philadelphia (Tue) – Charleston (Fri) – Cartagena (Wed) – Balboa (Fri) – Auckland (Tue) – Sydney (Fri) – Melbourne (Mon) – Port Chalmers (Sat) –Napier (Tue) – Tauranga (Thu) – Auckland (Fri) – Manzanillo, PA (Tue) – Cartagena (Wed).
“With this new service, CMA CGM reinforces its presence in the Pacific region by increasing its offer to and from the U.S,” declares Xavier Eiglier, vice-president CMA CGM Oceania Lines.
“We thus confirm the importance for the group to grow in Oceania.”
