Ivory Coast


First call for WAZZAN 2:

The first vessel for this service arrived in the harbor on 13 July (ETB 14). For this occasion we organized a commercial and official coffee & viennoiserie presentation, with the participation of S.E M. Amadou KONE Transport Minister and S.E M. Abdelmalek KETTANI Moroccan Ambassador, the important fruit reefer and general retail customers.

After the presentation of the CMA CGM Group, the line as well as our new logo,

S.E M. Minister Amadou KONE took the stand insisting on the importance of the maritime lines for the economics and general development of the country and in particular for the two partners Côte d’Ivoire and Morocco

He expressed his gratitude to the CMA CGM Group for their initiative & insisted on his personal implication in the improvement of port access conditions in a short term.

This was followed by a speech from the Ambassador Abdelmalek KETTANI congratulating CMA CGM for the judicious choice for the name and its origin: Hassan al-Wazzan (Hassan the philosopher), known as Léon the African, giving a perfect link between Morocco and Africa. He emphasized the role that the Wazzan line could play in the development of commercial exchanges in both directions and also underlined the excellent cooperation with the Côte d’Ivoire and CMA CGM.


Following this everyone shared the Coffee & Croissants
