New NEMO will serve Australia directly from Europe and the Mediterranean
CMA CGM is to launch a rationalized version of its NEMO (North Europe, Med, Oceania) service, offering 'the fastest and only direct and dedicated link from Europe to Australia via Suez.'
To be launched end November and operated in partnership with Hapag Lloyd (50/50), NEW NEMO will now serve Australia directly from Europe and the Mediterranean, calling Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinen on the return westbound leg.
NEW NEMO will deploy 12 modern 2800 TEU capacity vessels, of which 6 CMA CGM vessels, each with significant reefer carrying capacity.
The 84-day round trip voyage will cover : Tilbury / Hamburg / Rotterdam / Le Havre / La Spezia / Damietta / Fremantle / Melbourne SB / Sydney / Brisbane / Melbourne NB / Adelaide / Singapore / Port Kelang / Chennai / Colombo / Damietta / Malta / La Spezia and back to Tilbury.
?This new design of the NEMO service allows us to rationalize our offer between Europe and Australia. It guarantees CMA CGM customers highly competitive transit times while strengthening our regional coverage on this expanding market, with calls in the 5 major Australian ports of Fremantle, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide?, explains Jean-François Guittet, Senior Vice President Africa Oceania and Indian Ocean Lines.
Northbound, NEW NEMO will serve South East Asia (Port Kelang, Singapore), the Indian Sub Continent (Colombo, Chennai), and return to the Mediterranean with Damietta and Malta kept as traditional CMA CGM hubs for the Levant and North and West Africa markets.
New Zealand will continue to be served directly by the CMA CGM PAD service (Panama direct), together with relay options using the CMA CGM Group network in the ANZ zone.
The first vessel to be deployed on the NEW NEMO will be the CMA CGM Galilée end of November from North Europe.
