Created in 1948, COMANAV is the national leader in transporting passengers and freight and in managing port operations, and has developed strong market positions in each of these three areas of activity.
For the maritime transport of goods, it has a fleet of vessels operating on regular scheduled services from Morocco to locations throughout the Mediterranean. It has a presence in Morocco’s largest ports, with subsidiaries such as Somaport in Casablanca and a 20% stake in Tanger Med, the country’s second largest container terminal. With five lines operating between Morocco and Europe, it is also the country’s leading passenger transport company.
The victorious CMA CGM Group said in a statement: “We are very pleased and honoured to have been selected by the Kingdom of Morocco to succeed the government in managing the COMANAV company. This company is of great interest to CMA CGM as it will strengthen our position in Morocco both in terms of cargo transport and port operations.”
