CMA CGM from Lebanon all the way to the world
CMA CGM Group, led by Rodolphe Saadé, is steering into the future with new partnerships, customer-centric innovations and state-of-the-art digitalization.
CMA CGM is the story of a visionary entrepreneur Jacques R. Saadé who back in 1978, anticipated the revolutionary potential of the container for international trade with the creation of the Compagnie Maritime d’Affrètement (CMA).From one ship, four employees and a single maritime link between Beirut, Latakia, Livorno and Marseille, the family business has grown to become one of the world’s leading transport and logistics groups with 509 vessels calling at 420 ports in 160 countries and 110,000 employees spread over 755 offices worldwide and 750 warehouses.
Throughout the years, CMA CGM has built its success on its values of boldness, initiative, imagination, and integrity.
Although the Group has a global reach, it has never forgotten its Lebanese roots, and continuously looks to strengthen its commitment to Lebanon and contribute to the economic and maritime development of the country.
Today, CMA CGM Lebanon is a major actor in shipping and logistics through its agency Merit Shipping. Its 220 employees provide the market with international expertise, value-added offerings and an unmatched quality of service, covering import, export, and cross trade operations in reefer and dry containers.
