The CMA CGM Jules Verne made her maiden call in Le Havre on June 20 at the Terminal de France in Port 2000. She is the world biggest French-flag containership. With a transport capacity of 16,020 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU), she joins the other sister-ships ordered by CMA CGM shipping line and named after great sea explorers (real or virtual ones). 

Owing to its Port 2000 equipment, HAROPA-port of Le Havre is one of the very few ports in the north-European range to be able to receive this new giant of the seas, 396 meters long and 54 meters broad. The CMA CGM Jules Verne has 12,315 TEU onboard. 70% of the shipment loaded in Le Havre accounts for traffic coming from other European countries, which confirms the part as a hub played by the Norman port for the French shipping line.

Green call
Faithful to the Group’s process of sustainable development, the CMA CGM Jules Verne is equipped with the latest technology innovations in terms of safety and environmental protection. The shipowner was, in addition, rewarded by HAROPA on June 5, inst., receiving the ESI trophy (Environmental Ship Index) which encourages the green calls made by the shipping companies whose vessels emit fewer pollutants and less CO2 and make the effort to go beyond the requirements of the standards in force.

Arrived during the night of June 19 to 20 at Port 2000, the CGM CGM Jules Verne sails the FAL 1 (French Asia Line 1) service, the world main shipping route which links Northern Europe with Asia. This line provides a weekly service with excellent transit times (for example, Khor Fakkan in 16 days, Jebel Ali in 18 days, Ningbo in 34 days). The CMA CGM Marco Polo started the series and was first received in Le Havre in December 2012, and the CMA CGM Alexander Von Humboldt made her maiden call in Le Havre in early June.
