CMA CGM Group has reflected on its 2021 in the new posting of a video of the carrier’s progress throughout the year.
The terminal, which covers an area of 560,000 square meters with quays of over 2km in length, will have a capacity of around 1.5 million TEU and will facilitate the deployment of the carrier’s larger vessels. Operations are planned to start in 2022.
In recent news, the French firm achieved a $5.6 billion profit for the third quarter of 2021, up from $567 million in the same period the previous year. During the third quarter of 2021, the group transported 5.5 million TEU.
On logistics investments, in November the company signed an agreement to acquire a further 90% stake in Fenix Marine Services’ (FMS) terminal in the Port of Los Angeles, based on an enterprise value of $2.3 billion.
In early December, the group’s logistics subsidiary CEVA Logistics signed a $3 billion deal to acquire most of Ingram Micro’s Commerce & Lifecycle Services.
