The CMA CGM Group is mobilizing its logistics, shipping and aerial expertise to help the Indian population severely affected by COVID-19 pandemic, alongside the French Government.
Thanks to its new airfreight division CMA CGM AIR CARGO, the Group was able to mobilize an Airbus A330-200F from its fleet and to offer a fast and agile transport solution to the French government to transport 8 medical oxygen generator plants between Paris and Delhi. After being trucked to Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle airport (France) by its subsidiary CEVA Logistics, the units were delivered to eight Indian hospitals a few hours later.
For this international solidarity operation, the Group is mobilizing the resources of its logistics subsidiary CEVA and will also transport containers specially designed for the transport of liquefied oxygen between Qatar and India. Complementary to shipping and intermodal solutions, airfreight transport enables the CMA CGM Group to offer a strengthened logistics offer with complete, fast and agile solutions for its customers.

With its fleet of four cargo aircraft with a total capacity of 240 tonnes, CMA CGM AIR CARGO offers an enhanced logistics solution to meet the growing demand of its customers for new, complete, fast and agile solutions. This solution is adapted to emergency transport and to the fast-evolving needs of supply chains.
