The CMA CGM Group is launching the new service Black Sea Med Express, which will offer a weekly connection between the main ports of the Black and Aegean seas with the North of Morocco (Tangier and Casablanca) and Algeria (Annaba) in order to develop the activity between the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea with short lines.
The route was specifically created in order to respond to increasing trade between the Black Sea countries, Turkey, Algeria and Morocco.
A global service offering multiple service possibilities to the countries of Southern and Eastern Europe and transshipment to world markets.
CMA CGM offers some of the best transit times between: Constanta connected to Casablanca (Morocco) in 16 days, Ambarli (Turkey) to Annaba (Algeria) in 6 days, Malta to Odessa (Ukraine) in 4 days and Izmir (Turkey) to Malta in 2 days.
The Black Sea Med Express service will begin on 21 August in Malta with a fleet of four vessels with a capacity of 1,700 TEU, which will operate in Casablanca, Tangier, Malta, Odessa, Constanta, Ambarli, Izmir, Malta and Annaba.
The implementation of the Black Sea Med Express service is directly in line with the CMA CGM Group’s strategy for the development of short lines in the Mediterranean and Black Sea.
