Upgraded service between northern Europe and the Americas

CMA CGM is changing its New Victory Bridge service connecting North Europe to US South Atlantic, Mexico and the US Gulf, to include calls in Rotterdam and Miami.

The ports of Felixstowe and Savannah, included in the previous rotation, will now be served through CMA CGM’s Round The World and Liberty Bridge services.

In partnership with CSAV it will deploy five vessels of 3,000 teus and will now have two weekly departures from Mexico. 

CMA CGM reckon the new service will have the shortest transit times on the market both westbound and eastbound between north Europe and Mexico, from Altamira to Antwerp in 16 days against 21 previously, and between north Europe and US South Atlantic covering Bremerhaven to Charleston and Miami to Le Havre in 9 days.

The rotation of the New Victory Bridge service will  be as follows: Le Havre – Antwerp – Rotterdam – Bremerhaven – Charleston – Miami – Vera Cruz – Altamira – Houston – Miami – Le Havre.
