Expert solutions for your oversized goods

Oversized goods

Our Project Cargo division takes care of all your goods that cannot be loaded onto standard containers, whether they are particularly heavy, large or fragile. Thanks to our high level of technical and commercial expertise, 6 specialist teams are at your service all over the world and a dedicated project manager helps you with tailor-made solutions. Your oversized cargo is carried on CMA CGM’s fleet of vessels, in or on open-top or flat-rack containers, ensuring optimal safety.

A high level of professionalism for your hazardous goods

We apply very strict procedures for transporting your hazardous goods, respecting the highest safety standards. We do this with the support of hazardous goods offices in France (Marseille, Le Havre), the United States (Norfolk), Hong Kong and Australia (Melbourne). Their role is to deliver loading permits, without which hazardous goods cannot be loaded onto our vessels.

Military Cargo and affiliated

Specific conditions are applied to shipments of Military Cargo and affiliated under any Bill of Lading issued by a carrier within the CMA CGM Group.

We apply a strict approval process for the transportation of your Military and affiliated cargo, in order to best safeguard the interests of our company and your shipments, while remaining compliant with the requirements of the parties involved. A dedicated team at the Marseille Head Office is in charge of studying the feasibility of the shipments, providing a quotation adapted to each cargo, and gathering the relevant approvals to secure each booking.
