Italian joint venture to help shippers make the switch

[ April 2, 2024   //   ]

CMA CGM has signed a joint venture with Italian intermodal company, GTS General Transport Service, to offer transport and logistics services in Italy and in Europe.

European Container Network will combine the expertise and resources of both companies to provide innovative and sustainable door-to-door transport solutions for any containerised business.

It will initially focus on the Italian market, but the service will be rapidly across Europe, say the partners.

GTS chief executive, Alessio Muciaccia, said: “By combining our strengths in intermodal rail transportation with CMA CGM’s expertise in shipping and logistics, we will create a seamless and sustainable solution that meets the evolving needs of our customers.”

CMA CGM’s executive vice president assets and operations, Christine Cabau Woehrel, added: “We see tremendous potential in this partnership with GTS. Together, we will unlock new opportunities for all JV’s customers, offering them innovative and decarbonized solutions if they wish to switch to rail.”
