CMA CGM commences commercial operationsat Kribi Container Terminal in Cameroon


THE CMA CGM Group has an-nounced the start of its com-mercial operations at the Kribi Container Terminal in Cameroon. On this occasion earlier this month, the CMA CGM BIANCA, having capacity of 8,721 TEUs and length 335 metres, became the largest containership to call in Cameroon.


The CMA CGM Group is deploy-ing four new weekly direct services in Kribi to northern Europe, the Mediter-ranean and Asia. They are:


* EURAF 4, connecting the Medi-terranean and West Africa with the following rotation: Marseilles, Barce-lona, Valencia, Casablanca, Algeciras, Tangier, Dakar, Lome, Bata, Malabo, Apapa, Tincan, Onne, Kribi, Port Gentil, Libreville, Doua-la, Algeciras, Marseilles


* EURAF 5, connecting Northern Europe and West Africa with the following rotation: An-twerp, Le Havre, Lisbon, Algeciras, Pointe Noire, Luanda, Kribi, Douala, Abidjan, Algeciras, Antwerp


* ASAF, linking Asia and West Af-rica with the following rotation: Qingd-ao, Xingang/Tianjin, Busan, Shanghai, Ningbo, Nansha, Tanjung Pelepas, Singapore, Pointe des Galets, Cape Town, Pointe Noire, Kribi, Luanda, Cape Town, Port Klang, Singapore, Qingdao


* West Feeder Service, connect-ing Kribi, Port Gentil, Boma, Matadi and Libreville


Thanks to its strategic positioning, the Kribi hub will also significantly reduce transit times, said a release.


The Kribi terminal aims to be as a major port in Cameroon, a growing market, in addition to Douala, and a hub by offering the Cameroonian supply chain a modern infrastructure adapted to the new generation of transoceanic vessels, the release added. The Kribi container terminal is jointly operated by CMA CGM, Bolloré Transport & Logis-tics and the Chinese group CHEC as part of a 25-year public-private partner-ship with the State of Cameroon.
