Responding to the need of its customers for a personalised and unique product, CMA CGM has resumed its Bijagos Shuttle for the seasonal export of cashews from Bissau in West Africa to India and Vietnam.
Effective June 2020, Bijagos Shuttle service will be fully operated by CMA CGM deploying two vessels up to 2,100 TEU nominal capacity: m/v Georgia Trader and m/v Milan Trader.
Bissau port is served on fortnightly frequency during the cashew season from late June to September. Indian ports will be reached in 40 days via Lome and Vietnam ports in 47 days via Kribi, CMA CGM’s strategic hubs in West Africa. Apart from the Bijagos Shuttle service, well-known in Bissau to serve cashew exports, CMA CGM operates 31 services covering Sub-Saharan Africa.
