CMA CGM announced on Friday the service offer EUROSAL XL, which directly connects the West Coast of South America and Northern Europe.
The new EUROSAL XL is a result of the fusion of the Group’s services EUROSAL1 and EUROSAL2. It is the best offer on the market thanks to its vast coverage of ports on the West Coast of South America and the shortest transit times on the market to Northern Europe. As an example, Chile is connected with Rotterdam in only 25 days from Valparaiso.
The new EUROSAL XL service will offer:
A new stop at Buenaventura in Colombia, which supports the export of bananas and pineapples to Northern Europe. From Buenaventura, customers will have access to a wide feedering net accessing Guayaquil in Ecuador and Paita in Peru with the shortest transit times on the market to Northern Europe.
A new stop at Puerto Angamos offering optimal solutions to export pepper from Chile to Northern Europe.
A state of the art fleet: modern vessels with a capacity of 9,000 TEUs, capable of passing the enlarged Panama Canal opened in June 2016.
The first vessel will leave the port of Rotterdam on January 3, 2017. Offered in cooperation with Hamburg Süd and Hapad-Lloyd, the new rotation will be: Rotterdam, London Gateway, Hamburg, Anvers, Le Havre, Caucedo, Cartagena, Manzanillo, Buenaventura, Callao, Puerto Angamos, Valparaiso, Callao, Buenaventura, Manzanillo, Cartagena, Caucedo, Rotterdam.
