French container shipping specialist CMA CGM opened a Navigation and Port Operations Center in APL’s corporate headquarters in Singapore on January 11. 

Designed to be CMA CGM’s third navigation command center to its combined fleet of more than 500 container vessels, the new Singapore outpost is dedicated to serving the Asian time zone.

The two other centers – located in CMA CGM’s corporate headquarters in Marseille, France, and its regional office in Miami in the United States – take charge of the European and Americas time zones respectively.

Based on live analytics of the vessels’ operating speeds, ocean currents, weather forecasts and high traffic areas, each centers’ team is able to assess, anticipate and mitigate any navigation-related risks to CMA CGM’s vessel operations.

Guidance and alerts are provided to deck officers on how vessel routes, speeds and fuel consumption can be optimised across the company’s fleet, while ensuring the safety of its crews and vessels globally, CMA CGM said.
