French container carrier CMA CGM has decided to add a new service to directly connect Mexico, Cuba, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic.
The new INDIGO line will provide a weekly direct service on the market and reduced transit times between Mexico and the Caribbean, according to the company.
As part of the new service, CMA CGM will add a call in Kingston and a new port of call at Progresso in Mexico.
Additionally, the service will allow access to the Cuban ports of Mariel and Santiago de Cuba.
CMA CGM said that the new rotation will be as follows: Progreso, Altamira, Veracruz, Mariel, Kingston, Rio Haina, Kingston, Mariel, Progreso.
The new service was announced less than a week after the company made a number of changes to its offering as it launched EUROSAL XL, a new service connecting the West Coast of South America and Northern Europe, and upgraded its Moroccan coverage by deploying six services linking the country with Russia, Europe and the Middle East.
Furthermore, CMA CGM earlier said that it would enhanced its FEMEX service between North Europe and Turkey by adding new ports of call in Felixstowe, Valencia and Piraeus.
