CMA CGM opens 4,000TEU depot in Indonesia

The CMA CGM Group has opened on 18 August its fourth and largest container depot in Cakung, East Jakarta, Indonesia, which has an operating capacity of more than 4,000TEU and occupies a site of 35,000m².

The Cakung depot is the latest addition to three other CMA CGM depots in Marunda (Jakarta), Cikarang, and Surabaya. With the Marunda facility operating at full capacity, the opening of the new Cakung depot is timely in catering to Indonesia’s growing exports, according to the company's statement.

"Given the Cakung depot’s close proximity to the neighboring industrial warehouses, travel time and distance between the facilities are significantly reduced," said the French carrier, which also pointed out that now, shippers have two CMA CGM depot options in Jakarta.

The Marseille-based shipping group said that its depots offer container stuffing, cleaning and repair as well as pre-trip inspection, pre-cooling of containers and reefer monitoring services.

According to the company's announcement, CMA CGM depots specialise in converting and outfitting standard containers into customised containers such as garment on hanger containers which keep garments in pristine conditions from the factory to shops.

“Increasingly, we are handling more customised cargoes such as garment on hanger containers and Flexitank containers for liquids that will require special handling by our in-house experts. Our depots are therefore important in enabling CMA CGM to fulfill the high standards we promise our Indonesian exporters and shippers,” commented John Lim, General Manager of CMA CGM Indonesia.
