The French container shipping giant CMA CGM says, "conteneur;" its US agent, CMA CGM (America), might say, "crate." It's an indispensable way of transporting cargo in today's mobile environment, and CMA CGM (America) plays an equally vital role on behalf of its principal's North American transportation business. CMA CGM (America) offers more than 20 types of services, including arranging for transportation of freight by truck, rail, ship, or intermodal (moving goods, for example, by rail with local delivery by truck) in and out of North America. The company also handles import- and export-related paperwork for its customers. CMA CGM (America) maintains some 25 offices in major trade gateways throughout the US.
