Under the name of 'Ocean Three,' they concern the Asia-Europe, Asia-Mediterranean, Transpacific and Asia-United States East Coast maritime trades.

The agreements (a combination of Vessel Sharing Agreements, Slot Exchange Agreements and Slot Charter Agreements) will complete the CMA CGM offering on the biggest global maritime markets, the French ocean shipping group said in a statement.

On the Asia-Europe trade, four weekly services will be offered , joining the two existing services, making a total of six departures per week

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
