CMA CGM has rerouted more of its ships around the Cape of Good Hope in the face of increasing security threats in the Red Sea.

The world’s third-largest liner company said on Friday that its NEMO service, which links Europe to India and Australia, would divert via southern Africa.

“Due to recent attacks on commercial vessels in the Red Sea Region, CMA CGM Group is taking contingency measures on several services usually crossing the Suez Canal to ensure the safety of its vessels and their crews navigating these waters,” the shipowner said.
