CMA CGM Group confirms its decision to set up a High Risk Bonus for its officers and crews.
In light of the increase in piracy in the Gulf of Aden and as a member of IMEC, CMA CGM Group confirms its decision to set up a High Risk Bonus for its officers and crews. When transiting through this dangerous region, seafarers will receive extra pay equal to 100% of their basic wage. 65 CMA CGM vessels transit each month through the Gulf of Aden, most of which are deployed between Asia and Europe. These large container vessels have a capacity from 4.000 to 11.000 Teus and sail at an average speed of 24 knots.
CMA CGM applies very strict safety and security regulations and has set up a number of measures to avoid potential attacks even though container vessels are less vulnerable than other ships due to their speed and high freeboard.
All these measures and decisions confirm the Group"s commitment to the security and well-being of its seafarers.
