CSAV-Libra delete South America calls on Marco Polo
CSAV and Libra-Montemar have pared down a service that previously linked the Indian Subcontinent to South Africa and the East Coast of South America.
The service, according to research from American Shipper affiliate ComPair Data, now will be a pure South Africa-Indian Subcontinent loop. In the process, the lines have withdrawn three of the nine vessels previously operating on the service, and have deleted calls at Itajai, Santos, Paranagua, and Rio Grande.
The revised rotation is Durban, Cape Town, Jebel Ali, Karachi, Nhava Sheva and Durban. It operates with six vessels (four from CSAV and two from Libra) with an average capacity of 2,613 TEUs.
