They will replace smaller ships dedicated to routes between the French West Indies, France and EuropeIn order to cope with these larger capacity vessels, the CMA CGM Group will help to modernize and increase the capacity of the biggest shipping ports in Guadeloupe and Martinique, as well as making wharfs larger. Fort de France and Pointe à Pitre, central hubs of the Caribbean and South America, will be the starting point for transshipments to Guyana, Saint Martin, Saint Barthélemy and northeast Brazil. With its new investment, the Group hopes to offer more support to its customers and partners and more generally to the economies of Martinique and Guadeloupe.
