Hamburg Sud and Maersk merge service with CMA CGM, CSAV, China Shipping service




Hamburg Sud and Maersk Line will combine a Asia-South America service with a service operating by CMA CGM, CSAV and China Shipping Co., starting later this month.




The latest round of vessel-sharing agreements comes as the container line industry aggressively restructures itself to stave off weak demand and overcapacity. The pact between the two groups of carriers combines services between Asia, South Africa and the East Coast of South America.



During the period from December 2011 through May 2012, Hamburg Sud and Maersk’s ASAS/NGX Sling 2 service will be merged CMA CGM, CSAV and China Shipping’s ASAX/SEAS Sling 2 service. The new joint service will consists of 11 vessels with capacities of 4,200 to 4,600 20-foot equivalent units deployed by all five carriers.
