The CMA CGM Group is stepping up 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.

Four modern long-range freighter aircraft

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.
