CMA CGM offers carrier-direct container shipping quotes through Freightos

CMA CGM has become the first container line to be listed on the Freightos booking platform, allowing direct sales, booking and shipment management. As part of the pilot phase, it will be able to offer booking, guaranteed pricing and secured capacity via the IT platform, initially for China-US trade lanes. Additional lanes will be available on the platform in the near future.

CMA CGM is not guaranteeing a set amount of capacity will be available on Freightos. Rather, it will depend on container space for particular voyages, which will be updated on a real-time basis. CMA CGM believes that this agreement is yet another step towards its customer-centricity strategy.

Mathieu Friedberg, Senior Vice President – Commercial Agencies Network at CMA CGM Group said, “This partnership raises the bar for ourselves, and the industry, with this important step into the digital era, selling directly to shippers on Freightos.”
