CMA CGM, a leading transport and logistics company in Indonesia Present in Indonesia since 1992, the CMA CGM Group is strongly committed to the country’s economic, maritime and logistical development. It has become one of the main French companies established in Indonesia and a leader in the maritime industry with:

Over the past 27 years, CMA CGM has established various local partnerships including collaborations with Indonesia Port Corporation (IPC) and the Jakarta International Containers Terminal (JICT). Through its JAX service, CMA CGM is the only container shipping company to have implemented a direct call service between Indonesia and the West Coast of the United States, thus greatly contributing to the growth of Indonesian exports to the US.
