CMA CGM unites its Containerships and MacAndrews brands

CMA CGM unites its Containerships and MacAndrews brands

The CMA CGM Group unites its Containerships and MacAndrews brands under the single Containerships brand, effective from 1 April, 2019. By joining the forces of two recognized experts of intra-European multimodal transport, the worldwide shipping group will create and develop an Intra-European leading brand, combining unique maritime and inland solutions with complementary regional footprints.

This new, innovative single brand will thus be able to unlock major synergies and concentrate its resources on commercial growth and on the development of high quality services for its customers. The integration of the local agencies networks will also allow for the creation of a tailored intra-regional service, in line with the CMA CGM Group’s “Customer Centricity” strategy.

Acquired by the CMA CGM Group in 2018, Containerships is a specialist in intra-Europe for logistics services related to containerized cargo. The company offers its customers a complete range of services as well as logistics solutions for all modes of transportation (ships, trucks, trains and barges) and is present in the Baltic markets, Russia, Northern Europe, North Africa and Turkey.

MacAndrews, which joined the CMA CGM Group in 2002 and which merged with OPDR in 2018, also offers a complete range of rail, road and maritime transport services and is a specialist of container transport on Intra-European routes. It mainly connects North and Central Europe with the Iberian Peninsula, the Canary Islands and Morocco.

Guillaume Lathelize, Senior Vice President – Short Sea Lines Med & North Europe, declares on this occasion: “With the combination of these two complementary brands recognized for their expertise, the CMA CGM Group reaffirms its strategy aimed at densifying its regional coverage and developing land and logistics services. We will thus be able to offer our customers tailored end-to-end solutions and better cater to their expectations and their needs.”;
