CMA CGM continues to develop Lebanon’s economy by launching a new line connecting Beirut to the ports of the Adriatic Sea

CMA CGM, a world leader in maritime transport, introduces the ADRIMED EXPRESS service in Beirut, in line with its commitment to contribute to the economic development of Lebanon.

The intra-regional Mediterranean market is developing and CMA CGM, with its sixth Regional Office recently launched in Beirut, aims to position Lebanon as key player in that market. ADRIMED EXPRESS will connect Lebanon to Italy and Central Europe, by providing direct connections to the Ports of Mersin, Piraeus, Ancona, Venice, Koper, Ravenna, Limassol, and Alexandria, offering the most competitive transit times on the market. The line will start operating on May 6th with 3 vessels.

This service reinforces the already existing services offered by CMA CGM in the country, which include:

  • –  8 weekly calls, which include 7 calls to the Port of Beirut, and 1 call to the Port of Tripoli.
  • –  The launch of the country’s first dry port in the Bekaa valley; a key initiative to support Lebanese fruit and vegetables producers and accelerate the development of agriculture in the country. Today, more than 60% of Lebanese exports are done using CMA CGM reefers.
  • –  An increased capacity in Tripoli: 11000 m2 consisting of 6000m2 of warehousing facilities in the Free Zone area, and 5000m2 in the container terminal yard of the port.

    CMA CGM Group, led by Rodolphe Saadé, is extremely attached to Lebanon and wishes to contribute to its economic development, through its unique transport and logistics offering that connects Lebanon to the rest of the world.
