As part of its renewed commitment towards more sustainable trade, the CMA CGM Group announced its decision to no longer carry plastic waste on our ships as of June 1st, 2022.
To enforce this commitment while maintaining sufficient anticipation buffer for their customers, CMA CGM announced that no plastic waste will be loaded onboard CMA CGM Group’s vessels as from April 15th, 2022. Plastic waste is identified under HS code category 3915.
To ensure effectiveness of this measure, CMA CGM has set up ban on HS code for commodities concerned in their booking system. False declarations on the nature of the goods will lead to a blacklisting of the incriminated entity, according to the shipping company.
