CMA CGM, CNAN NORD Spa Partner in Algeria

Posted by November 22, 2016

Global container shipping company CMA CGM and Algerian national shipping company CNAN NORD Spa have signed a cooperation agreement on November 8 to develop shipping transportation in Algeria.

The agreement focuses on three strategic axes, including operational cooperation for a common shipping line linking Northern Europe to the Algerian ports, operational and logistic cooperation between CMA CGM and CNAN NORD Spa (space allocation onboard oceanic CMA CGM vessels, provision of containers etc) and sharing of expertise between CMA CGM and CNAN NORD Spa regarding the training of seafarers and executives.
According to CMA CGM, the agreement is part of its development strategy in Algeria, which aims at accompanying shipping transportation development within the country.
CMA CGM established its presence in Algeria 20 years ago, a country now at the heart of its activities within the Mediterranean Sea. Ten agencies are located across the country (Algiers, Djen Djen, Mostaganem, Oran, Skikda, Sétif, Ghazaouet, Constantine, Annaba, and Bejaia) and employ more than 260 experts. CMA CGM offers 5 maritime services (Euronaf, Algeria Shuttle, Wemed, RoRo Algérie, NAF TS) and calls nine Algerian ports.
The group is able to accompany the development of its local clients and new market growth, for both imports and exports, thanks to connections offered with France, Spain, Turkey, Egypt and the Arabian Gulf. Calls offered in CMA CGM’s hubs connect Algeria to the entire world.
