CMA CGM FORT DE FRANCE delivered

With a capacity of 3,500 TEU and a length of 219 meters, CMA CGM FORT DE FRANCE stands out by its draft which is adapted to the West Indies ports.

 

It is also equipped 850 plugs for refrigerated containers with perishable goods such as bananas.

 

Following the delivery of the CMA CGM FORT DE FRANCE, CMA CGM will take delivery over the Spring and Summer of 2019 of three other vessels with identical features - CMA CGM FORT ROYAL, CMA CGM FORT SAINT CHARLES and CMA CGM FORT FLEUR D’EPEE.

 

This owned fleet will sail under the French flag and will be deployed in replacement of the existing “Forts” on the North Europe French West Indies line, which links Europe and Metropolitan France with Guadeloupe and Martinique, crossing the Atlantic Ocean in under 10 days.
