CMA CGM Group has announced the launch of Networking services, the first business matchmaking marketplace in the shipping and logistics industry.
In particular, the networking services marketplace provides clients with solutions to accelerate their business worldwide, extend internal growth, create new business opportunities and find the appropriate suppliers or customers, while it also saves costs and time and reduces the risks associated with business development.
In addition, the Marseille-based Group offers customised solutions to meet all customer expectations, whether they want to protect their cargo, grow their business, or act towards carbon neutrality.
"As an exporter, you can showcase your goods and expand your business with new opportunities. As an importer, you can find new suppliers directly on the platform and negotiate online," explained CMA CGM.
The entities listed on the platform must meet requirements such as having maintained a business relationship with the CMA CGM Group for at least two years, demonstrating sound management as well as being clear of liabilities and outstanding payments for the past 12 months. Shipping a sufficient volume of goods is also a good requirement able to meet demand, according to a statement.
The new platform, powered by CMA CGM and CEVA Logistics, has the potential to serve the company's customers in 160 countries across the world, calculates already more than 1,200 partners in 110 countries and it can be used to trade all commodities, not just subject to specific regulations, such as fruits, healthcare or textile.
