CMA CGM has decided to gather all of its intermodal subsidiaries under one name:Greenmodal Transport.

Rail transport service, river transport service, road transport service, Progeco and TCX, are now all gathered under Greenmodal Transport. These five entities, each contributing the knowledge of the sector they specialize in, make up a subsidiary of over 500 employees. To date, Greenmodal Transport is the only French operator to offer the possibility of combining three means of transport: via roads, railroads, and inland waterways.

Greenmodal Transport facilitates the organisation and management of the logistics chain through a single contact capable of meeting all the needs of customers.

Greenmodal uses its own means of providing its products and services. It applies its mastery of transport tools to solve logistics issues. CMA CGM gives customers the possibility to go from one mode of transport to another based on their needs. This makes the process more efficient.

Greenmodal network

Environmentally friendly intermodal solutions

Greenmodal Transport has a weak carbon footprint. For many years, CMA CGM has committed to sustainable and responsible development for all. Switching modes of transport allows the Group to limit CO2 emissions and to match the mode to the distance travelled.

Moreover, the goal of Greenmodal Transport in terms of environmental impact is in line with the goals of the Grenelle de l’Environnement français (French environmental reform project) and of the EU climate and energy package.

In 2013, Greenmodal Transport will carry 160,000 TEUs via inland waterways or railroads. That means 160,000 fewer lorries on our roads!
