In September 2021, CMA CGM and Brittanny Ferries announced a €25 million partnership. This is life-saving news for Brittanny Ferries, who have been in great difficulty due to COVID, and a real business opportunity for CMA CGM, who are expanding their distribution network in the UK.
The first shipment of CMA CGM cargo to England took place on 12th January 2022, symbolizing a real cooperation between two French shipping companies. The containers, loaded on special chassis and transported aboard the Cotentin vessel, left Le Havre for Portsmouth. Four departures per week are planned using this technique.
“We know that we have to adapt to market trends and customer demands to show our strength in a competitive market. This important step is therefore welcome and underlines the mutual benefits of our collaboration”,, – Christophe Mathieu, Chairman of the Board of Brittany Ferries.
