CMA CGM buys 2 Hansa 6,500-TEUers for US$13.5 million each
FRENCH shipping line CMA CGM has purchased two 6,500-TEU containerships from Germany's Hansa Treuhand.
The vessels, HS Paris and HS Rome, already chartered to CMA CGM, are expected to be sold for US$13.5 million each, reported American Shipper.
The HS Rome is currently deployed on the OCEAN Alliance's Vistory Bridge service. Earlier in the year, it was deployed on the MSC-operated Aegean and Levante Express services, according to ocean carrier schedule and capacity database BlueWater Reporting.
The HS Paris currently sails on the North Europe/South Med service jointly operated by Hamburg Sud, Seago Line and CMA CGM. Prior to that, PIL and APL deployed the ship on the Red Sea Express service jointly operated in December 2016.
