CMA CGM announced that it will reshuffle its Asia-U.S. East Coast services from March 28. The new Asia-U.S. East Coast network is reportedly part of the French ocean carrier’s move to consolidate services with other box ships in a bid to cut vessel capacity and boost freight rates.

– The Manhattan Bridge (Asia-U.S. East Coast) service is to be operated by China Shipping, Evergreen, and UASC with nine 4,000-TEU vessels. Port rotation is Shanghai, Xiamen, Yantian, Hong Kong, New York, Norfolk, Savannah, and Shanghai.

– The Columbus Suez (Asia-U.S. East and West Coast) service operated by CMA CGM and Maersk Line with 16 vessels each with a capacity of 8,100 TEUs remains unchanged. Its rotation is Shanghai, Ningbo, Hong Kong, Yantian, Tanjung Pelapas, Suez Canal, New York, Norfolk, Savannah, Suez Canal,  Tanjung Pelapas, Hong Kong, Yantian, Shanghai, Pusan, Seattle, Vancouver, Yokohama, and Shanghai.
