The CMA CGM Group announced that it had become an Official Partner in logistics solutions for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.


The French logistics company said it would utilise its know-how to support the world's greatest sporting event set to take place in the French capital.


"The CMA CGM Group will make its expertise available to Paris 2024, handling the transport and logistics for all the goods, equipment and materials required for the event’s success at the Olympic and Paralympic venues," it said in a statement.


Via its CEVA Logistics and CMA CGM Air Cargo subsidiaries, the Group will organize all the international transport and customs brokerage activities and provide and operate the requisite logistics facilities for Paris 2024.


CMA CGM will also operate road and river transport and logistics services at the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games venues, in metropolitan France and French overseas territories.


Sustainable solutions for the Olympics


"CMA CGM is joining forces with Paris 2024 to deliver more sustainable Games, careful of all of its operations' environmental and social impact. The CMA CGM Group, which is committed to a sustainable approach targeting Net Zero-Carbon by 2050, will provide low-carbon, energy-efficient logistics solutions," it said.


CMA CGM also noted that it would leverage its transport and logistics solutions powered by LNG, biofuels, electricity or sustainable fuels, as well as barge transport for intra-city deliveries, to reduce the carbon impact of international transport services.


The Group will also ensure that packaging and warehouse waste are optimized.
