CMA CGM has announced the launch of the INDAMEX 2, a complementary service to the current INDAMEX, offering optimised connections to/from the Indian Subcontinent and the US East Coast.

With this new loop, CMA CGM strengthens its service offer on the trade in order to match customers’ strong demand. 8 vessels will be deployed (3 of them operated by CMA CGM), providing the only non-stop service between ISC and US East Coast in both directions, it highlighted in a release.

Service will start at the end of October to support the traditional extra demand of customers during the pre-Diwali period.
