CEVA Logistics, now a unit of French shipping giant CMA CGM, has combined its expertise in Thailand and Laos to launch a new cross-border service for ocean freight containers.

The new service provides solutions for both import and export customers and helps them reduce their carbon footprint as empty containers no longer have to be returned to their origin.



The new combined ocean freight and cross-border trucking service enables importers to drop off their empty containers at a newly expanded CMA CGM container depot, operated by CEVA, outside the Laotian capital Vientiane.



This means there is no need for an empty return leg where equipment would be previously unused and would have been sent back to the Thai port of Laem Chabang where it entered the country.



Exporters from both Laos and north eastern Thailand benefit from no delay in accessing containers in their region, which means they can swiftly and easily expedite their freight on its journey to the port, a joint statement said.



Effective immediately, the container depot in Vientiane will support all CMA CGM Group carriers and will additionally provide storage, repacking and assembly services within the Free Trade Zone from which it operates.



Said CEVA vice president Elaine Low: 'It serves as a very concrete example of the tangible benefits the strategic partnership with CMA CGM already brings to our customers.'
