As part of its renewed commitment towards more sustainable trade, the CMA CGM Group has announced its decision to no longer carry plastic waste on its ships. The decision will come into effect on 1 June 2022.
To enforce this commitment while maintaining sufficient anticipation buffer for customers, CMA CGM will not allow plastic waste to be loaded onto its vessels from 15 April 2022.
To ensure the effectiveness of this measure, CMA CGM has set up a ban on HS code for commodities concerned in its booking system. False declarations on the nature of goods will lead to a blacklisting of the incriminated entity.
Our customer teams continue to proactively monitor the situation. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your Ligentia contact(s).
