%2020 %07 %13

MARSEILLE-based CMA CGM, the world's third largest carrier, and Safmarine, a Maersk division, will offer two joint services connecting the Far East to South Africa, Mozambique, Reunion and Madagascar.

CMA CGM will join the existing Maersk-Safmarine "Safari 1" loop as a ship provider, reported maritime analyst Alpahliner. With a transit time of eight weeks and a deployment of eight 6,500-TEU vessels, this service calls at Shanghai, Ningbo, Fuzhou, Shenzhen-Yantian, Tanjung Pelepas, Port Louis, Durban, Ngqura, Cape Town, Port Louis, Singapore, Guangzhou-Nansha and back to Shanghai.

Another joint service is MOZEX 2/Safari 2, which will succeed for CMA CGM to the MOZEX. Deploying seven ships of 2,200-2,500 TEU with a transit time of seven weeks, this loop will call at Tanjung Pelepas, Port Kelang, Reunion, Toamasina, Maputo, Beira, Nacala, Port Louis and back to Port Kelang. The first sailing is scheduled on May 8 from Tanjung Pelepas where the Safmarine Nimba departs.

For Maersk Line, the "Safari 2" loop replaces a transshipment service based at Port Louis (Port Louis-Reunion-Madag-East Africa relay service), which was a substitute to a Tanjung Pelepas-based relay service that was closed in January 2012 (Safari Loop 2).
