A major player in France…
CMA CGM has over 6,300 French customers. They include the big groups as well as SMEs who export some 6,000,000 tonnes of merchandise a year in CMA CGM containers from French ports. Last year, in excess of 3,000 calls were made at 11 French ports, via the 38 shipping lines servicing France.
The Group also works with more than 160 suppliers in France.
…and in Marseilles
In Marseille, the Group’s impact on the economy is particularly significant. In addition to employing 2,500 people, making it the biggest private employer in Marseille, CMA CGM’s business attracts some 2,500 people to the CMA CGM Tower each day, generating over 4,000 taxi rides.
Last year, over 19,000 hotel nights were booked – thanks to CMA CGM.
