CMA Terminals Holding
CMA Terminals provides development, conception, construction, and operation of container terminals. The company was founded in 2012 and is based in Marseille, France. CMA Terminals operates as a subsidiary of CMA CGM S.A.
CMA Terminals, a fully owned CMA CGM subsidiary, is another port operator in charge of the development, conception, construction, acquisition and operation of terminals. This CMA CGM subsidiary was created in 2012 and already handled 2.6 million TEU in 2013.
CMA Terminals is always looking for new investment opportunities, and contributes its expertise to all aspects of the development and management of container terminals.
It welcomes CMA CGM lines but serves all shipping companies indiscriminately in order to develop the terminals and offer top-quality service.
Today, CMA Terminals owns 13 terminals worldwide (operating or under development), serving areas that complement those covered by Terminal Link. The subsidiary is strategically present worldwide and invests boldly, mainly in niche markets such as:
- Marseilles, France, where CMA Terminals serves a short-sea market and works closely with local importers-exporters, and where RORO terminals complement container terminal services;
- Long Beach, on the West Coast of the U.S., which is a Group’s top investment in a key region of the world;
- the French West Indies (shares owned by CMA CGM Antilles-Guyane), demonstrating the importance CMA CGM attaches to French overseas departments and regions (DOM-TOM);
- In Ukraine
- In Nigeria, in 2014, CMA Terminals and ICTSI sign agreement for a 25% stake of Lekki International Container Terminal Services LFTZ Enterprise which operations are expected to start on 2016-2017.
The subsidiary keeps on developing, and will soon open its fully automated Rotterdam World Gateway terminal in the Netherlands.
