elivered gradually as of 2024, the seven new container ships will serve Guadeloupe and Martinique, significantly increasing services to the two islands, while also maintaining the same service standards, reliability and regularity. They will replace smaller ships dedicated to routes between the French West Indies, France and Europe
In order to cope with these larger capacity vessels, the CMA CGM Group will help to modernize and increase the capacity of the biggest shipping ports in Guadeloupe and Martinique, as well as making wharfs larger.

The CMA CGM Group is committed to the energy transition and has set itself the target of becoming Net Zero Carbon by 2050. The seven new ships rolled out in the French West Indies in two years will be powered by biogas
