CMA CGM alters routes due to strikes in Finland

Stade, Germany - June 25, 2021: One of nine sister ships and largest LNG powered ships of the world, container vessel CMA CGM CONCORDE on Elbe river heading to Hamburg.

The CMA CGM Group has announced that the political labour actions in all Finnish ports have impacted its services.

The shipping firm reported that the strike began on 11 March and has been extended until 7 April at midnight.

CMA CGM has since changed its rotations and its vessels are avoiding Finland ports. As a result, import cargo for Finland has been or will be unloaded in Tallinn, Estonia.

Due to this case of force majeure situation, CMA CGM’s customers can either choose to accomplish their shipment in Tallinn, Estonia or to have cargo delivered to its final destination in Finland once the strike is over.

Cargo destined for Finland will be loaded as planned with transshipment in Tallinn. Such cargo will be subject to a freight adjustment of €350 ($379) per container to cover additional costs incurred by the line under this force majeure situation.

Standard storage and Demurrage & Detention conditions will apply for all cargo awaiting shipments.

CMA CGM noted that some limited opportunities exist to deliver cargo by ferry to Finland, on a case-by-case basis.

This month, CMA CGM Group announced that it would be a founding member of Flexis SAS, the next generation of electric van enterprise, along with Renault Group and Volvo Group.
