MERCOSUL LINE Launches New Northeast Express Connection (NEXCO)

MERCOSUL LINE, part of CGM CGM Group, has announced the launch of its 3rd Cabotage service, Northeast Express Connection (NEXCO), which is estimated to start in the month of October 2020.

The service will connect the regions of Southeast and Northeast calling the ports of Santos, Salvador, Suape and Itaguaí, and will be operated with a new vessel in their fleet, “CMA CGM ARISTOTE”, with a nominal capacity of 1,700 TEUs.

The strategic calls will provide operations with better transit time / lead time, intermodal efficiency, and reduced CO2 emissions. The new 10.5-day rotation will alternate the weekly calls offering two options for departure, repeating every 3 weeks.
