CMA CGM has announced the reshuffle of its SAFRAN service, connecting North Europe with East Coast South America.

SAFRAN will structurally stop calling in Itapoa & Algeciras with effect from 1 July, when the 10,500TEU Cap San Augustin will start its voyage from the Port of Rotterdam. Additionally, during a period of eight weeks commencing from the same vessel, SAFRAN will drop the Le Havre call.

“These measures are being put in place to ensure service reliability that has been severely strained by the current operational constraints in North European & East Coast South American ports,” said the French carrier.

The new rotation of the SAFRAN service will be Rotterdam, London, Hamburg, Antwerp, (Le Havre), Santos, Paranagua, Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Paranagua, Santos, Tanger, Rotterdam.
