In effect, the east-west Med service already operated by Arkas and Tarros, including calls in Portugal, has been joined by CMA CGM. The Marseilles-based global carrier is supplying a 1,700 TEU vessel into the new service, operating alongside similar intake ships from Arkas (one) and Tarros (two).


As a result of CMA CGM’s ingress, new calls are being introduced in Marseille and in Algeciras.

The ports of call are Alexandria (Old Port), Salerno (Amoruso Container Terminal), La Spezia (Tarros’ Terminal del Golfo), Genoa (Terminal San Giorgio), Algeciras (TTI), Casablanca (Somaport), Leixões (TCL), Setúbal (Sadoport), Marseilles (Mourepiane), Genoa, La Spezia, Piraeus (Piraeus Container Terminal), Mersin (Mersin International Port), Lattakia (Lattakia Terminal) and Beirut (Beirut Container Terminal.
