UK shipping company CMA CGM (UK) and sister company, MacAndrews, have consolidated their presence in the City of Liverpool with the move to a brand new combined office facility in the port’s prestigious Princes Dock development.

The move to 12 Princes Parade sees CMA CGM UK relocate from its existing offices in the Port of Liverpool Building and MacAndrews move from Lancaster House in Tithebarn Street.

CMA CGM UK and MacAndrews’ combined office houses over 230 staff in ultra-modern facilities. The two companies occupy 2,550 sq. meters over two floors; right at the heart of Liverpool’s new rapidly developing business quarter. The address of the new office is 12 Princes Parade, Princes Dock, Liverpool L3 1BG. Tel: +44 (0) 151 479 5555 Fax: +44 (0) 151 236 2644

Comments David Halliday, executive chairman CMA CGM (UK) Shipping Limited: “We have been seeking a combined office in Liverpool for the staff of CMA CGM UK and MacAndrews for some time.

“12 Princes Parade provides our staff with a stimulating work environment and offers much greater functionality than our existing facilities. It is a state-of-the-art development that befits a company that is at the cutting edge of container shipping.

“In the UK, the CMA CGM Group is becoming an increasingly significant player with a developing maturity. All told, we’ve now got nearly 300 staff at eight offices across the United Kingdom.

“We are a participant in the UK Tonnage Tax regime and are committed to investing in the array of services provided to UK shippers under the CMA CGM and MacAndrews brands.

“Through the Port of Liverpool, we now operate four weekly container services, three to the Iberian Peninsula under the MacAndrews banner and a feeder link with CMA CGM’s global container network through the hub port of Le Havre.”
