CMA CGM Group’s newest Container Depot in Indonesia handled 150,000 TEU in 9 Months

CMA CGM Container Depot Indonesia

The CMA CGM Group has announced its newest Container Depot in Cakung, Indonesia has handled 150,000 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) containers as of May 2022 in only nine months of operations. The Group’s fourth and largest container depot in the country started operations in August last year.

Occupying an area of 35,000 sqm with an operating capacity of more than 4,000 (TEU) containers, the depot caters primarily to commodity exports such as paper and rubber, as well as manufactured products such as garments, footwear, and electronic items, among others from Indonesia.

CONTAINER Grade Selection is the best solution for transporting cargo complying with food specifications

The facility has become synonymous with CONTAINER Grade Selection, CMA CGM’s solution for shipments that must comply with stringent food product specifications. As a result, the depot has handled five times more average monthly container volume in the first quarter this year versus the last quarter of 2021.

More than just dry container stuffing, the deport specialises in handling non-dangerous liquid shipments in Flexitank containers which CMA CGM has shipped from Indonesia.

Thanks to its fully-automated vehicle entry and exit systems, the depot is characterised by its fast, less-than-20-minutes turnaround time for vehicles discharging and picking-up containers from the facility.

The one-stop depot also conducts a pre-trip inspection, container pre-cooling, reefer monitoring as well as container cleaning and repair. In addition, the facility uses its wastewater recycling system to reuse up to 70 % of recycled water from container washing. Each day, up to 15,000 litres of water are recycled.

Currently running its machinery on biofuel, the facility will soon be installed with rooftop solar panels to power its office operations and depot lighting in the second half of 2022. This will make the CMA CGM Cakung depot one of the first in Indonesia to be solar-powered.

John Lim, General Manager of CMA CGM Indonesia, said: “We are delighted to have handled the first 150,000 containers in nine months of depot operation. As dedicated as we are to providing service excellence, it is in our DNA to continually mitigate our environmental footprint by tapping solutions and renewable resources where we can. Our milestones achieved today and those planned for tomorrow demonstrate the CMA CGM Group’s commitment to go the extra mile for our shippers in BETTER WAYS.”
