The service will offer new transportation opportunities between North Europe, the Mediterranean and the Indian Ocean, on weekly direct connections in Djibouti on CMA CGM"s EPIC (Europe, Pakistan, India) and MEX (Mediterranean, Asia) services.
From North Europe, cargo will be transported via the EPIC service calling Southampton, Hamburg, Antwerp, Le Havre, Port Said, and Djibouti.
