The container carrier CMA/CGM runs a weekly service from Halifax to Kingston, Jamaica. Kingston is a hub port for CMA/CGM, and allows connections to other routes. After calling in Kingston the ship will do a circuit of Gulf of Mexico and US east coast ports, as part of CMA/CGM's Gulf Bridge Service.
Today's caller was Arsos, a Cypriot registered ship, built in 2007 in Zhoushan China. It is rated for 1296 TEU. Typical of feeder container ships, it is fitted with cranes, which allows it to work the boxes at smaller ports.
