CMA CGM has won the category of Best Ship Owner/Operator at the Seatrade Maritime Awards Asia event held last week in Hong Kong.

The shipping line said the award was recognition of outstanding performance in several areas including customer service innovation, business profitability, schedule reliability, network and service development, investment and commitment to environmental protection, provision of crew welfare, as well as fleet utilisation.


 “We are honoured for the recognition from the judging panel, made up of experienced and respected leaders in the industry,” said Thomas Cassuto, managing director of the CMA CGM Asia regional office.

“We are proud to be the first shipping line in the world to equip its giant containerships with LNG-powered engines, reinforcing our continuous commitment to the protection of environment through our boldness and pioneer spirit,” Mr Cassuto said.

“By receiving this award, CMA CGM is privileged that the major industry partners recognise us as the front-runner of technological innovation globally and in Asia Pacific.”
