CMA CGM Group has completed the acquisition of La Meridionale, a mixed-use cargo and passenger shipping company based in Marseille, France.
La Meridionale currently operates scheduled services to Corsica. The company has four ro-pax ferries operating up to 13 weekly crossings between Marseille, Porto Vecchio and Ajaccio, as well as services between Marseille and Morocco.
The acquisition of La Meridionale complements the CMA CGM Group’s new division focused on specialized marine operations. This division includes the new car transport business, the stake in Brittany Ferries and the stake in the ro-ro shipping company Neoline.
