SeaLand to charter space on CMA CGM vessels

The intra-America subsidiary of Danish container giant Maersk Line will purchase 350 TEUs per week on ships belonging to the French ocean carrier, according to a filing with the Federal Maritime Commission.

   SeaLand, Maersk Line’s intra-America subsidiary, will charter space from French ocean carrier CMA CGM on ships moving cargo between Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Jamaica, Colombia, and Panama.
   A filing with the FMC for the CMA CGM/SL Gulf Bridge Express Slot Charter Agreement, says the space sharing is ramping up from August to October from 200 TEUs per week to eventually 350 TEUs per week, with possibly 50 more per sailing. The carrier will have access to 90 reefer plugs.
   According to ocean carrier scheduled and capacity database BlueWater Reporting, CMA CGM operates the Gulf Bridge Express service with three vessels with an average capacity of 2,637 TEUs. The port rotation of the loop is Veracruz (MX), Altamira (MX), Houston, New Orleans, Kingston, Cartagena, Manzanillo (PA), and Veracruz.
   CMA CGM subsidiaries ANL and Delmas also take slots on the Gulf Bridge Express along with German carrier Hapag-Lloyd.
