New cargo airline: CMA CGM AIR CARGO
Written by Ivo Gračanin.
The CMA CGM Group, a world leader in shipping and logistics, is stepping up in its strategic development in logistics by creating a specialised air freight division: CMA CGM AIR CARGO.
This move into air freight strengthens the Group’s transport and logistics business, allowing it to offer its customers a new range of comprehensive, agile and customised solutions.
To support its expansion into air freight, the CMA CGM Group is buying four 60-tonne-payload Airbus A330-200F freighter aircraft, which came into service between 2014 and 2016. With a range of 4,000 nautical miles, they will connect Europe with the rest of the world. The CMA CGM Group will entrust the operation of its freighter fleet to a European airline.
This expansion into air freight is a new milestone in the Group’s strategic development, with the aim of providing Group customers with a complementary range of services covering both shipping and logistics.
