On 29 and 30 October, the "Conmar Avenue" of the CMA CGM line made her first port call at the Flanders Terminal of Dunkerque-Port.

The leading port in France for imports of fruits and vegetables in containers, Dunkerque-Port has expanded its range of shipping services with the connection to Morocco via the "New Dunkrus" service. Equipped with 7 ships each with a nominal capacity of 1036 TEUs and 250 reefer points, the service includes the ports of Casablanca and Agadir and makes a port call at the Flanders terminal of Dunkerque-Port on Monday every week. The service will also meet the needs of European companies wishing to export to Morocco and will supplement the existing shipping service.

For Stéphane Raison, President of the Executive Board: "The new "New Dunkrus" version of the Morocco service operated by CMA CGM with arrivals at the beginning of the week at Dunkerque-Port will provide an ideal reply to the needs of stakeholders in the fruit and vegetable sector and deliver goods to Europe and Russia with highly competitive transit times".
