CMA CGM has announced that from 1 January, it will merge its shortsea subsidiaries, MacAndrews and OPDR, as MacAndrews.

MacAndrews was acquired by CMA CGM in 2002, while the 1882-founded Oldenburg-Portugiesische Dampfschiffs-Rhederei (OPDR) was purchased by the French carrier in 2015.

“The union between two companies specialising in intra-European transport enables the CMA CGM group to strengthen its multimodal offer in Europe, said CMA CGM.
