The French shipping line CMA CGM has announced a new weekly service named SEAS to replace the existing ASAX service and operate between Asia ports, South Africa and Brazil/Argentina.

The new service begins from 18 May 2005 from which time CMA CGM will provide five ships in association with three ships of China Shipping (CSCL) and two of Maruba.

The ten vessels average 2,500 TEU capacity and will undertake a weekly rotation of Pusan, Shanghai, Ningbo, Hong Kong, Chiwan, Port Kelang, Durban, Rio de Janeiro, Santos, Buenos-Aires, Rio Grande, Paranagua, Santos, Port Kelang, Hong Kong, Pusan.

The westbound route calls at Durban enabling CMA CGM to offer two weekly departures from Asia to South Africa (the other being the WAX service that connects Asia and West Africa)

CMA CGM says that by opening this new service, the line will carry on its developments in South America, particularly in Brazil and Argentina and show its willingness to widen its commercial offer on this fast growing market.
