The CMA CGM Group has mobilized its expertise to transport this load provided by international NGOs, companies, and French public institutions.

A Humanitarian Ship for Lebanon to support French and international relief efforts.

The campaign will allow for the transport of emergency equipment and essential goods and products provided by the CMA CGM Foundation’s NGO partners and the Group’s partner companies. The initiative also has the support of deeply engaged French public institutions which have been highly mobilized (Crisis and Support Centre of the French Ministry for Europe and foreign affairs, the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region, the Bouches-du-Rhône department, the City of Marseille, Marseille’s Naval Fire Brigade, Marseille’s Public Hospitals – APHM).

Deviated from its usual service to travel to the Port of Beirut

One of the CMA CGM Group’s ro-ro vessels will be deviated from its usual service to travel from Marseille to Beirut in the very near future (the date is to be determined). Roll-on/roll-off or ro-ro vessels are perfectly suited to the needs of humanitarian transportation. They can carry containers, motor vehicles (fire engines, ambulances, civil engineering vehicles), and pallets. The CMA CGM Group is bearing all shipping and port operation costs and providing a storage facility in Marseille until the vessel departs.

CMA CGM Group is mobilizing its shipping and logistics expertise

The CMA CGM Group is mobilizing its teams to centralize, consolidate and transport the humanitarian supplies of participating organizations that have a clearly identified and vetted structure to receive them on Lebanese soil. The CMA CGM Group is setting up an operational unit in Marseille and Beirut to review requests and organize delivery as quickly as possible.
