CMA CGM, the world’s third largest container shipping company has signed an agreement for the handling and storage of container cargo with Russia’s Port Bronka.
The affiliation with the new Russian port will improve existing CMA CGM services and modernise the operated fleet with a renovated higher size ice-class vessel.
Due to the approach channel and basin depth of 14.4 meters, the cargo handling equipment for post-Panamax vessel operations and the design solutions – which include the development of the new routes for shipments to Russia and entry to the new markets – Port Bronka aims to be Russia’s premier port.
CMA CGM has linked itself to St. Petersburg, where Port Bronka is based, through a network of European hub ports, with all international routes connecting calls at Port Bronka.
CMA CGM has a total fleet capacity of 1,807,298 TEU and the company serves more than 400 ports over the world.
