An Entrepreneur vision leading to a unique business adventure
Back in 1978, Jacques Saadé had a real business vision: he anticipated the revolutionary potential of the container for international trade. To support his idea, he created the Compagnie Maritime d’Affrètement.
The fast development of the company proved him right in many ways. From one ship, four employees, among whom Farid Salem, and a single maritime link between Beirut, Latakia, Livorno and Marseille, CMA became in a few decades one of the world’s leading container shipping and transport groups, operating 509 vessels from 420 ports in 160 countries and managing 34,000 dedicated employees working out of 755 offices worldwide.
Jacques Saadé’s boldness, initiative, imagination and integrity drove the company to success and these characteristics became through the years the core values of CMA CGM’s corporate culture.
In 1986, CMA extended its navigational routes from Northern Europe to Asia, and by 1992, it had opened its first office in China. In 2018, following the 2017 ratification of OCEAN ALLIANCE, the largest shipping alliance ever and the nomination of Rodolphe Saadé as the Group’s Chairman & CEO, the Group celebrated its 40th anniversary with the launch of a new series of global initiatives.
Pioneering partnerships, eco-innovations, customer-centric products and cutting-edge digitalization... The new strategic orientation is leading CMA CGM to even greater heights. With agility and expertise, our experts are simplifying and optimizing the entire shipping experience to provide our customers a seamless maritime, ports and logistics service into the future.
Through real business ethics, an active Foundation and a truly engaging environmental pact, CMA CGM strive to improve lives and protect the planet every day. As a leading group in the shipping industry, we need to be a model for sustainable global prosperity. At CMA CGM, we are Shipping the Future.
