The CMA CGM Group, a world leader in maritime transport, has announced the merger, effective January 1st, 2018, of its subsidiaries MacAndrews and OPDR which headquarters will be located in Hamburg.

The union between these two companies specialized in intra-European transport enables the CMA CGM Group to strengthen its multimodal offer in Europe, particularly thanks to the complementarity of the geographical zones covered today by MacAndrews and OPDR, in order to create the sector’s leader.

MacAndrews will bring together the strengths of the two subsidiaries and will be characterized by:
 a presence in 16 countries
 36 agencies
 595 employees (310 OPDR / 285 MacAndrews)
