CMA CGM: Black Sea and Ukraine situation update


The CMA CGM Group has been closely monitoring the situation in Ukraine and the Black Sea region. Over the past several days, we have taken all necessary measures to protect our employees and ensure as much as possible the continuity of the supply chain.

The safety of our employees and their families in Ukraine is our main focus. We are thankful to report that at the moment all of them are safe.
As part of our business continuity plan, they will be working from home until further notice. Our security team will be monitoring developments 24/7 to ensure constant contact with them.

In the interest of safety, the Group has decided to suspend all vessel calls to Ukraine as of today and until further notice.

As a result:

  • The BEX and BSMAR services will omit Odessa, Ukraine.
  • Bookings to and from Odessa are suspended.
  • The floating cargo to Ukraine will be redirected to the ports of Constanza (Romania), Tripoli (Lebanon) or Piraeus (Greece).
