    CMA CGM to reorganise its offering between Asia and West Africa

    CMA CGM Group adapts its service offering while continuing to improve its service reliability and cost efficiency, the company said in its press release.

     Withdrawal of WAX 2 service. The service was operated with 10 vessels of 4,500-5,400 TEU
     Reshuffle of the 3 services WAX, WAX 3 and AFEX with greater synergy effectiveness in the West Africa port rotation
     ASAF service, the lead product dedicated to South Range West Africa remains unchanged
