CMA CGM to launch a new express shuttle service linking East Asia to Russian Far East

CMA CGM – SSL Short Sea Lines Division has announced the launching of RUFEX 5, a new Short Sea Intra Far East weekly service, deployed between China / South Korea and Russian Far East.

The new service has launched from the 30th week (26 July - 1 August), from the China ports, according to the carrier's announcement.

"This fourth operated loop linking the ports of Shanghai, Qingdao, Busan and Vostochny completing our RUFEX Product [on top of current RUFEX 1 & 2 + JRX] is aiming at optimising your worldwide supply chain dynamics to/from Russia," said the French line in its statement.

CMA CGM believes the new product will bring a consistent sustainable alternative to Russian hinterland flows using its multimodal solutions via the company's Russian Far East gateway with an additional frequency.


CMA CGM will use two vessels, the 1,740TEU Songa Tiger and the 1,078TEU A Houou, on the service, which will have a rotation of 14 days.

The service rotation will be Shanghai - Qingdao - Vostochny (RUVYP) - Busan - Shanghai.

Shanghai to Vostochny will need six days, Qingdao to Vostochny four days, while Vostochny to Busan will need 1.5 days, according to a statement.
