MARSEILLE: April 10, 2019. CMA CGM has confirmed the acquisition of Ceva Logistics after announcing it holds 97.89 percent of the company’s stock and will therefore de-list it from the Zurich Stock Exchange after April 16.

CMA CGM Fort de France“This successful transaction marks a major milestone in the history of CMA CGM’s growth,” declared company chairman and CEO Rodolphe Saadé. “With Ceva, CMA CGM has confirmed its position as a leading worldwide maritime transport and logistics group, supported by a team of 110,000 employees. We can now offer our customers a complete range of solutions that meet all their needs and set us apart from the competition.”

A successful merger will produce a US$30 billion maritime-based logistics business providing LCL, airfreight, purchase order management, contract logistics and Customs clearance services in 160 countries.

CMA CGM says it is now going to set up a Ceva management operations centre in Marseilles to invest in IT and digital technology; refocus local teams on customer service and a more balanced segmentation; streamline the corporate organization; and apply targeted and customer-focused marketing.
