Boeing and CMA CGM Group, a world leader in shipping and logistics, today announced the purchase of two new Boeing 777 Freighters to grow the Group’s air freight division operations.
CMA CGM Group launched its dedicated air freight division, CMA CGM AIR CARGO, in February 2021, commencing commercial operations in March with its first flight between Liege (Belgium) and Chicago, followed by flights to New York, Atlanta, and Dubai. CMA CGM AIR CARGO represents a major new component of the CMA CGM Group in both operational and commercial terms. It is also a new milestone in the Group’s strategic development into logistics.
The Boeing 777 will provide CMA CGM AIR CARGO the flexibility to operate the airplane across its growing air freight network while helping to deliver on its sustainability objectives as the CMA CGM Group pursues its commitment to offer its customers a complete range of transportation and logistics solutions.
