CMA CGM has sufficient security in place for Persian Gulf, conference told

France-based CMA CGM has sufficient security measures in place to continue operating in the Persian Gulf region even as concerns mount over a possible dispute between Iran and major world powers, chairman and CEO Rodolphe Saade said at a business conference in Aix-en-Provence, France.

CMA CGM stopped services in Iran last year after US sanctions were reimposed, but Saade said CMA CGM was still sailing through the Persian Gulf.

Asked if CMA CGM had stepped up security on vessels going through the Persian Gulf, Saade said: “No, because the measures we have in place are already sufficiently elevated.”
