CMA CGM Deploys its Flagship Fleet Between Asia and the US

CMA CGM Deploys its Flagship Fleet Between Asia and the US
Danny Gill

The CMA CGM Group are set to deploy their flagship fleet of six 18,000 TEU vessels between Asia and the West coast of the US starting at the end of May.

In total, six ships of 18,000 TEUS will join the Pearl River Express service; a series of six ships bearing the names of great explorers: CMA CGM Bougainville, CMA CGM Kerguelen, CMA CGM Georg Forster, CMA CGM Vasco de Gama, CMA CGM Zheng He and CMA CGM Benjamin Franklin.

The CMA CGM Benjamin Franklin became the largest ship ever to call in the United States last December and was inaugurated on February 19 in Long Beach, in the presence of Jacques Saadé, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of CMA CGM, and over 450 customers.

The CMA CGM Benjamin Franklin will remain on the trans-Pacific market. The other five 18,000 TEU vessels will join her on the Pearl River Express line.

These ships are among the largest in the world, but are also equipped with the latest environmental technology aimed at significantly reducing their carbon footprint.
