On the other hand, the current CMA CGM local office and NOL Limited will be revamped as a significant regional hub from October 1st: CMA CGM Asia Pacific Limited..

” We are leveraging the extremely finest of CMA CGM and APL, two major carriers in the U.S., to bring our consumers an even more streamlined and focused customer experience,” stated Ed Aldridge, President of CMA CGM and APL in the United States. “This simplification strengthens the Groups number-one position in the country while enabling us to build on APLs rich heritage of U.S. flag-ship operations and service to the United States Government.”.

As part of its ongoing drive to permanently change its operating setup and network, The CMA CGM Group has revealed a “simplification” of its container trade offering.

” The reorganization of our Transpacific trade will keep our global network more diversified and effective,” stated Stéphane Courquin, Head of CMA CGM Asia Pacific.

As a provider, APL will quickly focus solely on servicing the United States Government.

This Singapore-based hub will drive CMA CGMs advancement in the Asia-Pacific region and will concentrate on delivering end-to-end shipping and logistics options. ANL Container Line Pty. Limited will end up being a subsidiary of CMA CGM Asia Pacific Limited as part of this development..

From 1st October, CMA CGM will become the sole business carrier of the Group operating in the Transpacific, leaving APL– a legendary pioneer in the trade lane– in a minor supporting function..

Dan Smith, principal, The Tioga Group, informed LM in an interview that alliances have just recently tended to remove carrier distinctions.
