Marseilles-based CMA CGM is cancelling six sailings on the Asia-North Europe trade from February 10, 2013 in anticipation of reduced production during the Chinese Lunar New Year holiday.

To be cancelled are one sailing each on the FAL 1, FAL 10, and FAL 3 services, all on week 7; two sailings on FAL 7 (weeks 7 and 8); and one sailing on FAL 2 (week 8).

But the French box ship in a statement said it will compensate for the void sailings with additional calls on some of its Far East-North Europe trade lanes.

Extra calls will be made in Singapore and Le Havre on FAL 1 on week 8. The new rotation will be Ningbo, Shanghai, Xiamen, Hong Kong, Chiwan, Yantian, Singapore, Port Kelang, Tanger, Southampton, Le Havre, Hamburg, Bremerhaven, Rotterdam, Zeebrugge, and Le Havre.

The same will be done in Xiamen, Chiwan, and Tanger Med on FAL 3 on week 6. The new rotation: Tianjin, Dalian, Busan, Qingdao, Shanghai, Xiamen, Chiwan, Yantian, Singapore, Port Kelang, Tanger, Le Havre, Hamburg, Bremerhaven, Rotterdam, Southampton, and Zeebrugge.

Additional calls are also scheduled in Yantian and Sines on FAL 6 on weeks 6 and 7. The new rotation covers Tianjin, Kwangyang, Busan, Qingdao, Ningbo, Shanghai, Yantian,  Singapore, Port Kelang, Sines, Felixstowe, Zeebrugge, Antwerpen, and Rotterdam.
