CMA CGM has announced it is opening a new dry port near the Iraqi capital of Baghdad in June 2013.

The world’s third-largest shipping container group will manage and operate the port, located in the Abu Ghreib area, allowing customers to custom clear their cargo near Baghdad instead of Umm Qasr.

The 165,000m2 dry port will be connected to CMA CGM’s inland transportation network, with a possible railway connection 3km away from the site and fast in-bound transit from Umm Qasr.

Storage facilities for full containers, LCL and refrigerated cargo will benefit from 24 hours surveillance and security services, keeping the cargo safe at all times, says the firm. Total storage capacity will be 12,000 TEUs.

CMA CGM has four offices in Iraq and operates two dedicated feeder services connecting the Iraqi Port of Umm Qasr with its Khorfakkan hub, Sharjah, UAE.
