CMA CGM is thrilled to announce the significant enhancements to their NWUK and SCUK services connecting Spain via the port of Bilbao with Ireland, the UK and the Netherlands, effective from June 21st, 2024.

These improvements not only aim to serve better but also demonstrate our dedication to expanding and strengthening their short sea door-to-door product across Europe.

To guarantee unparalleled schedule reliability, CMA CGM is deploying an additional vessel and operating 4 services with 5 vessels. This unique market offering from Bilbao to the UK and the North West continent is designed to meet the needs with precision and efficiency.

Service enhancements include:

-  Reliability Boosted: Now with five vessels in rotation, ensuring four reliable departures weekly from Bilbao.

-  Efficient Transshipment: Quick connections at Rotterdam to Scandinavia and the Baltics.

-  Dublin Specialization: Departures optimized for the fast transit of perishables.

-  Extensive Rail Network: Network of block trains from key areas in Spain to Bilbao.

-  Ample Container Access: High availability of both ambient and reefer 45 HCPW containers.

-  Comprehensive Logistics: Benefit from out cross-docking and warehousing services.

-  Friendly Shipping: More sustainable than road transport, reducing environmental impact.

The new rotation begins with m/v "ENCOUNTER" departing from Bilbao on 21/06.
