FRENCH shipping giant CMA CGM has announced an upgrade on its SAMWAF service with direct calls at South America east coast and West African ports from the end of May.

The upgrade will bring to the service larger vessels and add two new calls in Lome in Togo and Rio in Brazil.

The new structure offers a wide range of connection opportunities through local feeders, barges and transshipment to:

Montevideo and Asuncion via Itaja and Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal and other African destinations available via our Lome hub.

Inland transport is also provided by integrated intermodal solutions, being the SAMWAF service the gateway to connect the Brazilian and African markets.
