CMA CGM Group announced it has opened its fourth and largest container depot in Cakung, East Jakarta, Indonesia.

The 35,000 sqm site has an operating capacity of more over 4,000 teu, and comes as the group’s Marunda depot operates at full capacity.

CMA CGM’s depots handle container stuffing, cleaning and repair, pre-trip inspection, pre-cooling of containers and reefer monitoring services. They also specialise in converting and outfitting standard containers into customized containers such as Garment on Hanger containers. The depots also install Traxens devices on containers for end-to-end visibility by shippers; and Flexitank in containers for transportation of liquids.

John Lim, General Manager of CMA CGM Indonesia, said: “Our new depot in Cakung is designed to improve our inland logistics service and optimise our shipments in better ways. Increasingly, we are handling more customised cargoes such as Garment on Hanger containers and Flexitank containers for liquids that will require special handling by our in-house experts. Our depots are therefore important in enabling CMA CGM to fulfil the high standards we promise our Indonesian exporters and shippers.”
