Since the creation of CMA CGM Madagascar in 2003, container shipping company CMA CGM Group has continued to develop on the island to move closer to its valued customers and partners and meet economic growth forecasts in the Malagasy industrial market, the company said.

The CMA CGM Group announced today it will open two news agencies in Toliara (Tuléar) and Antsiranana (Diego Suarez), bringing its presence in Madagascar to eight offices, of which five owned by the group.


  • Avenue de France, Route du Port
  • Enceinte COMATO
  • Mahavatse II
  • Toliary 601


  • 1er étage Immeuble Ny Havana
  • Avenue Lally Tollendal
  • Antsiranana 201

To strengthen its offer in the Indian Ocean, for both import and export, the CMA CGM Group will is deploy a second vessel on its fortnightly Indian Ocean Feeder service, as from April 16, 2014, optimizing rotations with a second loop, the company said.

The CMA CGM Group, which is already the sole carrier to offer regular calls in the seven ports of Madagascar, will continue to expand intra-regional trade as well as national cabotage in Madagascar. The two Indian Ocean Feeders offer connections with MASCAREIGNES EXPRESS for Europe, Persian Gulf and India; MOZEX for Asia and SHAKA for the African continent.
