CMA CGM: a world leader and a major economic player

From its base in Marseille, the CMA CGM Group is present in more than 160 countries through its network of over 600 agencies, with more than 29,000 employees worldwide (4,500 in France).

With a young and diversified fleet of 532 vessels, the CMA CGM Group serves over 420 of the world's 521 commercial ports. Through more than 200 shipping lines, the company operates on every one of the world's seas. Its global presence and efficient ships like the CMA CGM BOUGAINVILLE enabled the CMA CGM Group to transport a volume of 18 million TEUs last year.

The CMA CGM Group revenues total US$ 21 billion in 2015 (Combined proforma CMA CGM NOL 2015), proving that "family business" companies are efficient and make it possible for French industry to rise to the upper echelons of world trade.

There are 2,400 staff members working at the Group's head office, the CMA CGM Tower in Marseille. It is a building worthy of a major player in the French economy. The Group has 6,300 French customers and CMA CGM is the largest private employer in Marseille, the city where the company was founded in 1978.
