By: | at 08:00 PM | Liner Shipping  

CMA CGM existing SAX Service (Asia-Panama-US East Coast Service) has been redesigned to include calls in BALBOA, Panama Eastbound and Westbound as well as Jacksonville, Florida Eastbound.

The SAX Service is now deploying 8 x 3,800 vessels (of which 3 operated by CMA CGM and five operated by TNWA) on the following rotation: Ningbo, Shanghai, Chiwan, Hong Kong, Balboa, Manzanillo, Jacksonville, Savannah, New York, Norfolk, Balboa, Ningbo.

In BALBOA, the SAX Service connects with the dedicated ANDEX Service, solely operated by CMA CGM, offering new destinations out of Asia and out of the US East Coast to the West Coast of South America (Buenaventura, Colombia - Guayaquil, Ecuador - Iquique, Chili ’ Callao, Peru and Puerto Caldera, Costa Rica).

CMA CGM ANDEX Service will also provide weekly sailings out of the West Coast of South America to the US East Coast and Asia.

The first call in BALBOA Eastbound will take place on June 26, 2008 and Westbound on July 10, 2008.

The Asia-US East Coast SAX All Water Service is also introducing an additional call at Jacksonville, Florida, as from July 7th, 2008, the new gateway into North Florida, right before Savannah.

This will complement CMA CGM PEX Service that calls weekly at Miami and Savannah.
