CMA CGM extends charter for Global Ship Lease boxship

London-headquartered Global Ship Lease has agreed an extension of the charter to CMA CGM for 2005-built boxship GSL Tianjin.
The 8,063 teu containership will be chartered to CMA CGM for a period of eight to 12 months at a rate of $11,900 per day, commencing January 26 in direct continuation from its current charter which was at $13,000 per day.
Ian Webber, CEO of Global Ship Lease, commented: “We are pleased to have secured this extension with CMA CGM for the continued employment of the GSL Tianjin. We look forward to maintaining our strong relationship with CMA CGM, our largest shareholder and the third largest liner company in the world, and to benefitting over time from the improving long-term fundamentals for mid-sized and smaller containerships.”
