Logistics Manager

The CMA CGM Group, one of the world’s leading global containers shipping companies, is pleased to announce that the CMA CGM GEORG FORSTER called England for the first time on July 6th.

 With its 1,305 ft. (398m) length and 177 ft. (54m) width, the CMA CGM GEORG FORSTER not only is, with her sistership the CMA CGM KERGUELEN, the CMA CGM Group’s largest containership, but it is also the largest UK flag vessel sailing the seas.

This gigantic vessel has a 18,000 TEUs (twenty feet equivalent) capacity: all containers placed together would totalize the distance between London and Southampton. Its size is above the height of the Empire State Building, wider than an Olympic pool, and its thrust is equivalent to the one of 10 Airbus A380 altogether.

The CMA CGM GEORG FORSTER will be christened in Hamburg on July 9th.

Calling 11 different countries, the CMA CGM GEORG FORSTER is positioned on one of the most emblematic lines of the CMA CGM Group. The FAL joins Europe to Asia.

In a globalized economy, this gigantic vessel has the capacity to transport almost 200,000 tons of goods between European, Middle East and Asian markets.

The CMA CGM GEORG FORSTER is equipped with the latest environmental technologies: an engine of the latest generation, a twisted leading edge rudder with bulb, an optimized hull design… Those innovations decrease the CMA CGM GEORG FORSTER CO2 emissions by 10% compared to the previous vessel generation. With an estimated emission of 37g of CO2/km for each container, the CMA CGM GEORG FORSTER is one of the greenest goods transport means in the world. Furthermore, in accordance with the CMA CGM Group’s commitment, the CMA CGM GEORG FORSTER environmental footprint responds to the 2025 energy efficiency regulations.
