CMA CGM records highest capacity growth in intra-Europe
CMA CGM (including Containerships, its intra-European short-sea operator, feeder carrier) is the only carrier to manage a significant increase in market share & capacity in the intra-European market over the last year, according to Alphaliner.
Overall, intra-European service capacity has declined 1.2% since February 2022, mainly due to the Russia/Ukraine conflict.
In this study, Alphaliner has calculated the market share of each carrier offering regular intra-European container services compared to a year ago.
CMA CGM again claims the second spot among Europe’s largest mainline operators (MLOs). The French carrier has increased its capacity share from 15%, or 147,000 teu, last year to today’s 16.2%, equal to 157,500 teu.
Unlike other carriers who have eliminated entire services to and from Russia, CMA CGM has either shifted tonnage to other intra-European services or replaced Russian calls with other ports in the Baltic or in the Black Sea region.
