CMA CGM and Shanghai International Port Group (SIPG) have signed a strategic terminal stevedoring agreement extending cooperation between the two groups in Shanghai.

The cooperation between CMA CGM and SIPG has seen progress in a range of areas such as pioneering LNG bunkering in Shanghai, facilitating the systematic shore powering connections during port calls, improving full and empty container dispatch to and from the yard. 

A new cooperation expands to include development between CMA CGM and SIPG on future storage and bunkering of bio-methanol at Shanghai port.

According to CMA CGM, through this strategic extension, CMA CGM and SIPG will continue to join their efforts and push their collective synergies in shipping and logistics resources towards enhanced anticipation and preparation of calls, improved berthing and productivity conditions. By comprehensively improving the efficiency of terminal service operation and optimizing business resources, both sides create favorable conditions resulting in allocating more efficiently network resources at Shanghai Port.

James Wang, Vice-President of SIPG said: “Under this collaboration, CMA CGM and SIPG work together to promote the diversified development of logistics industry in Shanghai Port, enhance the service function of Shanghai Port as a global shipping hub, and help upgrade the construction of Shanghai International Shipping Center from ‘basic completion’ to ‘full completion’.”

Christine Cabau Woehrel, Executive Vice President Operations and Assets of the CMA CGM Group, added: “by pushing cooperation between SIPG and CMA CGM into a more holistic approach than simply port call management, we aim at pushing efficiencies beyond the plain ship / quay experience.
