Monday, September 20, 2021

Dear Valued Customers,

We wish to inform you that a leak of data on limited customer information (first and last names, employer, position, email address and phone number) has been detected during our surveillance operations on the Group’s APIs. Our IT teams have immediately developed and installed security patches.

We invite you to remain vigilant to any suspicious activity and to follow these best practices to keep your account secure:

  • Do not share your account password or any personal information. CMA CGM will never ask them from you.
  • Always check the authenticity of an email requesting you to log in to our platforms (especially if requested to reset your password), even if it seems to be sent by the CMA CGM Group.

If you have any question, please contact:
