About us

Containerships, as the leader in intra-European multimodal transport, has a vast network of connections across Europe and Morocco and more than 700 owned assets that keep our customers' cargo moving. We started shipping way back in 1770 and we have been innovating ever since. Our LNG-powered vessels were the first such containerships in Europe, and there are more on the way.

Leader in Intra-European Multimodal Transport

Containerships is part of the CMA CGM Group, a leading worldwide shipping and logistics company. Being part of the Group enables our growth and supports our functional, operational, and sustainability goals.

At Containerships, we put the needs of our customers first and provide solution-oriented logistics to ensure a reliable, flexible, and sustainable service. Innovative equipment, an extensive network, and local expertise guarantee our industry-leading service.

In April 2019, two intra-European multimodal logistics experts, Containerships and MacAndrews, united to become one brand, Containerships. This created the largest pan-European network and combined service offering in the region.

Containerships is a full-service logistics company providing safe, reliable, and sustainable door-to-door multimodal transportation. Our comprehensive European network reaches from the Baltics to North Africa, providing our customers with outstanding coverage across the region. Our service portfolio consists of both standard and customised containers and logistics solutions, and our 34 vessels and 700 trucks operate on 43 services across sea, rail, road, and river.

With extensive experience in strategic European hubs and a proven track record, we provide flexible solutions with innovative technology for our customers. Our 1,200 specialists in 18 countries provide local knowledge and ensure efficient and functional supply chain management.

We focus on sustainability and innovation at every stage of the supply chain. Containerships is the first European operator to use LNG as the main fuel source throughout the end-to-end service including sea and land.
