Port of Seattle to be called by new joint service

A joint service between CMA CGM and Maersk Line will begin calling at the Port of Seattle's Terminal 18 in June. Seattle will be the first North American port of call, followed by Vancouver, British Columbia. The container ships will then call at a variety of Asian ports before returning to Seattle.

Ships from the two lines will make weekly stops in Seattle. Fourteen vessels, each with a capacity of 6,500 TEU (twenty-foot equivalent units), will be deployed on the joint service. Maersk and CMA CGM will use the dockside intermodal yard at Terminal 18 to move containers between ships and trains.
