Dear Valued Customers,
As part of its renewed commitment towards more sustainable trade, the CMA CGM Group announced its decision to no longer carry plastic waste on our ships as of June 1st, 2022. This landmark decision in the shipping industry will help protect the oceans and biodiversity.
To enforce this commitment while maintaining sufficient anticipation buffer for our customers, we kindly inform you that no plastic waste will be loaded onboard CMA CGM Group's vessels as from April 15th, 2022. Plastic waste is identified under HS code category 3915.
To ensure effectiveness of this measure, we have set up ban on HS code for commodities concerned in our booking system. Please note that false declarations on the nature of the goods will lead to a blacklisting of the incriminated entity.
Do not hesitate to contact you usual CMA CGM sales representative for more information.
Thank you for acting with us today for a more sustainable future.
