    The well-known maritime operator Mac Andrews, a subsidiary of the CMA CGM Group, has selected Dunkirk for its new service to and from Lisbon and Leixões in Portugal, with bi-weekly runs.

    Every Saturday a boat leaves Dunkirk and reaches Lisbon in three days and Leixões in five. A ship from Portugal arrives in Dunkirk every Sunday. The CMA CGM subsidiary is assigning two container ships to this new service, with a capacity of 450 TEU and 515 TEU, respectively. The Spanish region of Galicia will also be served efficiently via the port of Leixões.

    Guy Adams, Mac Andrews’ Managing Director for Northern Europe, Nord Europe, says: “I’m expecting a lot of benefits from this new link, which offers clients in the Nord-Pas de Calais and Belgian border region an opportunity for a modal shift that fits in perfectly with the Grenelle Environment Roundtable.”
