CMA CGM to reshuffle its West Africa services


Seeking to provide a reliable and best quality of service, CMA CGM has announced a reshuffle of its West Africa services.

While its EURAF 3 service will be ended, its WAZZAN service will deploy a full fleet of 1,700 TEU feeders; a dedicated Central Range Feeder will serve Monrovia, San Pedro and Takoradi via Abidjan on a weekly basis; a new weekly North Range Feeder will offer Banjul via Dakar; and the company’s upsized MEDWAX service (pictured) will now include Freetown in its rotation.

These updates will offer a better frequency to/from Monrovia, San Pedro, Takoradi, Banjul and further connections via main loops (EURAF 1, MEDWAX, WAX), as well as benefitting from more allocations from/to Monrovia, San Pedro, Takoradi and Banjul, and providing direct link from/to Sierra Leone and West Med

MEDWAX will still be offered in 35 days with 5 vessels of 2,500 to 3,500 TEU, calling Barcelona – Marseille – Valencia – Algeciras – Tanger – Dakar – Conakry – Freetown – Abidjan – Barcelona.

Central Range Feeder will be operated in 14 days with 2 vessels of 1,300 TEU, calling Abidjan – Monrovia – San Pedro – Takoradi – Abidjan.
North Range Feeder will offer Banjul via Dakar on a weekly basis with 1 vessel.

WAZZAN will still be operated in 35 days with 5 vessels of 1,700 TEU, calling Tanger – Algeciras – Nouakchott – Dakar – Bissau 1/2 – Nouadhibou – Las Palmas – Tanger.
