MSC and CMA CGM join forces on NEMO service

Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) and CMA CGM have updated their jointly operated NEMO service, which now connects North Europe, the Mediterranean Sea, South Asia, Indian Subcontinent and Australia.

The new service is operated by 14 ships 9,500TEU, nine deployed by MSC, while CMA CGM will use five boxships on the service.

"CMA CGM reinforced its Europe / Indian Ocean and Australia offering by upgrading its NEMO service, which links North Europe and the Mediterranean to the Indian Ocean Islands and Australia on the southbound leg and Australia to southeast Asia and Europe on the northbound leg," a spokesperson told Container News.

The two major carriers added a new port call at Malta Freeport Terminals for the new weekly container service, which offers direct connections linking Europe to Australia on its southbound route and Australia with Singapore, Port Kelang, India, Colombo and Europe northbound.

Cargo from northern Italy, meanwhile, will reach Malta within a few days, according to a statement.

“Not only does it [NEMO service] enhance the Freeport’s reputation as a strategic hub in the Mediterranean but it will also boost the local business community both on an import and export level,” commented Alex Montebello, Malta Freeport Terminals CEO.

The port rotation follows:
London Gateway - Rotterdam - Hamburg - Antwerp - Le Havre - Fos - La Spezia - Gioia Tauro - Malta Freeport - Pointe des Galets - Port Louis - Sydney - Melbourne - Adelaide - Fremantle - Singapore - Colombo - Malta Freeport - Gioia Tauro - Valencia
