To increase the reliability of its service to Douala, CMA CGM will connect the cargo at Pointe Noire instead of Cotonou. Cargo from India/Middle East Gulf will then benefit from a fortnightly service to Douala with a 5-day gain in transit time.

Starting March 11th, 2016 with m/v NORDIC HONG KONG loading in Khor Fakkan, the new MIDAS service pattern will allow very competitive transit times to Douala: 40 days from Khor Fakkan, 39 days from Jebel Ali, 35 days from Nhava Sheva and 32 days from Mundra.
