France’s CMA CGM has dropped the US Lines (USL) brand used on the group’s transpacific and North America – Oceania services.
APL has taken over the USL transpacific services while another CMA CGM subsidiay, ANL, is taking on USL’s North America – Oceania services. The move was just spotted by Alphaliner but has been in effect since the middle of October.
California-based US Lines was founded in May 2003 by Ed Aldridge, a former APL COO. CMA CGM bought it in 2007.
