CMA CGM Opens Logistics Storehouse in Lebanon

Posted by Eric Haun!!!

The CMA CGM group has opened a logistics storehouse in the heart of the Bekaa valley in Taanayel, Lebanon, offering a tailor-made logistics solution for reefer customers in the country's richest agricultural, commercial and industrial region.

With a total area of 20,000 m2, the logistics storehouse allows the storage of 1,000 empty containers (TEUs). This logistics solution also facilitates the recovery of empty containers, thus reducing costs and saving considerable time, CMA CGM said
Located 50 km from the port of Beirut and 124 km from the port of Tripoli, the logistics storehouse of Taanayel of the CMA CGM Group is also at the crossroads of the Lebanese coast and Damascus (in Syria) on one of the most important trade routes in the Middle-East.
This location in the Bekaa valley is strategic for the import and export of fruit and vegetables as well as for other products for Arab countries including Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
CMA CGM's Beirut office employs close to 200 people, maintains a strong relationship with Lebanon and wishes to continue to support its economic development.
Joe Dakkak, General Manager of CMA CGM Lebanon, said, "CMA CGM is constantly innovating its service offerings for the Lebanese market and the opening of the new Taanayel dry port brings us closer, creating new opportunities to serve our Bekaa clients. We have always believed in our country's potential, and this new investment is a true example of our faith in Lebanon's economic development."
