CMA CGM SA is the world’s third largest con­tainer ship­ping group and num­ber one in France. CMA CGM is head­quar­tered in Mar­seille (France), and oper­ates out of over 650 offices and agen­cies in more than 150 coun­tries. With reg­u­lar ser­vices on over 170 ship­ping lines, the Group man­ages a dense net­work capa­ble of meet­ing the expec­ta­tions of its cus­tomers all over the world. It is also one of the first global ship­ping oper­a­tors to have con­trol over the whole logis­tics chain offer­ing a door-​to-​door ser­vice that inte­grates both inland water­way trans­port (River Shut­tle Con­tain­ers) and rail­ways (CMA Rail), as well as port han­dling facil­i­ties and logis­tics on land.

The Group com­prises a net­work of com­ple­men­tary sub­sidiaries, each one an expert and rec­og­nized as the leader in their field. These sub­sidiaries fall into 4 areas: Con­tainer Ship­ping which includes all the reg­u­lar ship­ping lines; Mul­ti­modal which inte­grates our other modes of trans­port experts; Ser­vices which are respon­si­ble for logis­tics; and Tourism where groups the cruise com­pa­nies and travel agents. Facts & Fig­ures include 389 ships on 170 ship­ping routes; 9 mil­lion TEU trans­ported in 2010; 400 ports of call in 150 coun­tries; and 650 agen­cies and offices around the world, includ­ing 64 in China (Hong Kong included).
