CMA CGM’s North European Mediterranean Oceania (NEMO) and Hapag Lloyd’s Europe, Australia Express (EAX) combined service will begin calling at DP World London Gateway Port in early January 2017, with CMA CGM’s Rossini as the first to call on the service.
In addition to four port calls at cities in Australia, the service will provide the port with more direct links between Singapore, Malaysia, India, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Malta and Italy.
The full NEMO/EAX service loop into the UK from Australia comprises: Fremantle, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Singapore, Port Kelang, Chennai, Colombo, Cochin, Damietta, Malta, Salerno and DP World London Gateway.
Outbound of the UK, the NEMO/EAX service loop comprises: Rotterdam, Hamburg, Le Havre, Fos Sur Mer, Genoa, Damietta, Pointe Des Galets and Fremantle.
“With this new service we are now the only UK port to provide direct services to Australia, giving importers and exporters a unique trade advantage. This service also enhances our connection to the Mediterranean, opening up new markets for Port and Logistics Park users at DP World London Gateway,” James Leeson, Head of Port Commercial, DP World London Gateway, said.
