Com­mit­ment to In­dian op­er­a­tions, ex­pand­ing ser­vices and port calls and ag­gres­sive hin­ter­land pen­e­tra­tion has bought CMA CGM Agen­cies In­dia Pvt

Ltd into the spot­light as it walked away with the Con­tainer Line of the Year Award. Hav­ing pres­ence at 6 gate­way ports and 7 feeder ports within the coun­try, the ship­ping line also pro­vides in­ter­modal so­lu­tions cover­ing ac­ces­si­bil­ity to and from 43 in­land lo­ca­tions. CMA CGM op­er­ates through a global fleet of 445 ves­sels, of which a sig­nif­i­cant 165 ves­sels op­er­ate on the In­dian coast. A large fleet is bound to move a huge num­ber of con­tain­ers and CMA CGM has moved more than 0.75 mil­lion teus of con­tain­ers through the 15 ser­vices it op­er­ates to and from In­dia. Out of these 13 are di­rect ser­vices and 2 are feeder ser­vices. The ship­ping line has launched ‘Aqua­viva’ Con­tain­ers, which have be­come the sig­na­ture of OCEAN Al­liance. It has also signed a MOU with ENGIE to de­velop tech­nol­ogy to launch LNG pow­ered con­tainer ships. CMA CGM strives to make its op­er­a­tions eco-friendly which re­flects in the 4 per cent im­prove­ment of en­ergy ef­fi­ciency as com­pared to op­er­a­tions in 2015. A re­cent strate­gic part­ner­ship with In­fosys aims to fur­ther sim­plify and trans­form CMA CGM'S IT ap­pli­ca­tions and im­prove cus­tomer ser­vice ex­cel­lence. In­fosys will also open a cen­ter for de­vel­op­ment and in­no­va­tion in Mar­seilles to fur­ther up­grade tech­nol­ogy of

CMA CGM in that re­gion. Another IT de­vel­op­ment cen­ter will be opened in Dubai strength­en­ing the ship­ping line’s pres­ence in the Mid­dle East. CMA CGM aims at con­tin­ual de­vel­op­ment of E-busi­ness plat­form of­fer­ing end-to-end busi­ness av­enues to its cus­tomers.
