CMA GM, Hapag-Lloyd and ANL will change the rotation of their joint NEWMO/EAX service, which currently operates between North Europe, the Mediterranean, Oceania, Asia and the Indian Subcontinent, in December.

   Ocean carriers CMA GM, Hapag-Lloyd and ANL will adjust the rotation of their jointly operated NEWMO/EAX service in December, which currently operates between North Europe, the Mediterranean, Oceania, Asia and the Indian Subcontinent.
   The loop will add southbound calls at Fos Sur Mer and Reunion Island and will replace its northbound Genoa call with a Salerno call.
   Effective with the Dec. 11 sailing of the Box Trader from Tilbury, the revised port rotation of the NEWMO/EAX will be Tilbury, Hamburg, Rotterdam, Le Havre, Fos sur Mer, Genoa, Damietta, Reunion Island, Fremantle, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Singapore, Port Kelang, Chennai, Colombo, Cochin, Damietta, Malta, Salerno and Tilbury, Hapag-Lloyd said.
   The loop operates with 13 vessels with an average vessel capacity of 4,305 TEUs, according to ocean carrier schedule and capacity database BlueWater Reporting.
   Hapag-Lloyd and CMA CGM provide six vessels each on the NEWMO/EAX, while CMA CGM’s subsidiary line ANL provides one vessel. In addition, the French carrier’s subsidiary lines Delmas and US Lines purchase slots on the service.
   The NEWMO/EAX will continue to operate with 13 vessels after the revision, according to all participating carriers’ online service schedules.
   “The competitive transit times of 30 to 36 days from Northern Europe to Australia will remain unchanged,” Hapag-Lloyd said in a statement.
