APL resurrects the President ship naming tradition

APL resurrects the President ship naming tradition
CMA CGM has delved into the archives in renaming a pair of boxships it bought for subsidiary APL recently.

Alphaliner reports that CMA CGM has resurrected the President vessel naming tradition at APL, a line whose history stretches back to the 19th century and was known as American President Lines until it was bought by Singapore's Neptune Orient Lines (NOL) in 1997.

CMA CGM bought the HS Rome and HS Paris - pair of 6,552 teu boxships - from Germany's Hansa Shipping recently. The two ships have since been rechristened President Truman and President Cleveland, a nod to how APL used to name its ships in the last century.
