Following the renewal of the partnership till 2032, the new programme marks CMA CGM's commitment to continue offering its customers the highest quality of service, says an official release.

"Due to the unstable situation in the Red Sea, ships must be routed through the Cape of Good Hope, disrupting supply chains. CMA CGM and its partners are stepping up coordination and adapting the rotations of the DAY 8 Product. This will maintain the same high standards of visibility, reliability, and punctuality, which are the strengths of the OCEAN Alliance."

* Six services between Asia and Northern Europe.

-12 services between Asia and the west coast of the United States and Canada.

*Two transatlantic services connecting Northern Europe to North American ports.

*Three services between Asia and the ports of the Persian Gulf.

*The two services connecting Asia to the Red Sea are suspended until further notice.

Thanks to OCEAN Alliance, the CMA CGM Group's customers will benefit from:

*The deployment of 321 container ships including 119 vessels for the CMA CGM Group, which continues to play a significant role in the alliance.
