The “A Humanitarian Ship for Lebanon” campaign will see CMA CGM diverting one its ro-ro vessels from its usual service from Marseille to Beirut over the coming days to ship relief supplies.
“The campaign will allow for the transport of emergency equipment and essential goods and products provided by the CMA CGM Foundation's NGO partners and the Group’s partner companies. The initiative also has the support of deeply engaged French public institutions which have been highly mobilized,” the French shipping company said.
A ro-ro vessel was chosen for shipments given its flexibility to carry vehicles, containers and pallets. The company will be bearing all shipping and port operation costs and providing a storage facility in Marseille until the vessel departs.
