The French Line CMA CGM and its affiliate and Africa specialist Delmas have opened a new service from the East Coast of South America to West Africa. The service was recently launched with the first sailing of the 1,732 teu charter vessel RHL AQUA

The loop turns in six weeks with three vessels, offering fortnightly fixed-day departures. It serves the following ports: Buenos Aires, Rio Grande, Itajai, Santos, Abidjan, Pointe Noire, Luanda, Buenos Aires.

The launch of the new service follows the termination of an agreement with NileDutch under which CMA CGM and Delmas used to operate a joint ECSA – WAF service with the Rotterdam-based carrier – the ‘Samwaf’ loop.

Since the recent withdrawal of the French, the ‘Samwaf’ continues as a NileDutch standalone service. The sole remaining operator replaced the CMA CGM tonnage with NileDutch vessels and continues to offer one departure every ten days.The following ports are covered: Buenos Aires, Rio Grande, Itajai, Santos, Rio de Janeiro, Pointe Noire, Luanda, Buenos Aires.

Since July, the Hamburg-based north-south specialist carrier Hamburg-Süd takes a slot participation on the ‘Samwaf’.
