Lebanese-owned CMA CGM has announced the opening of its new bonded Dry Port near Baghdad in June 2013, in the Iraqi area of Abu Ghreib.
Managed and operated by CMA CGM, the Dry Port will be the sole one in Iraq, allowing clients to custom clear their cargo near Baghdad instead of Umm Qasr. CMA CGM’s intentions are to facilitate its customers’ business in Iraq and to strengthen its roots in this market.

It operates a fleet circa 400 vessels that serve more than 400 ports around the globe, and maintains a network of about 560 facilities in 150 countries.
