France’s CMA CGM is folding the MacAndrews brand into its other intra-European subsidiary, Containerships, effective April 1.
Acquired by CMA CGM last year, Containerships is present in the Baltic markets, Russia, Northern Europe, North Africa and Turkey.
MacAndrews, meanwhile, was bought by CMA CGM in 2002 and merged with OPDR last year. It mainly connects North and Central Europe with the Iberian Peninsula, the Canary Islands and Morocco.
Guillaume Lathelize, an SVP at CMA CGM, said the move was part of the group’s strategy in “densifying” regional coverage and developing land and logistics services.
“We will thus be able to offer our customers tailored end-to-end solutions and better cater to their expectations and their needs,” Lathelize said.
