The largest cargo carrier in France abandoned the Northern Sea Route

The French daily Le Figaro reports that France’s largest transport company, CMA CGM, is not interested in using the Northern Sea Route (Northern Sea Route, NSR) and other “corridors” in the Arctic region. This decision is due to financial interests.




It should be noted that CMA CGM is not only the largest transport company in France. She is the fourth largest container carrier in the world.

Le Figaro clarifies that the above statement regarding the Arctic in general and the Northern Sea Route in particular was made by the head of the French company, Rodolf Saade, during a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron. At the same time, about the meeting of the French leader with business representatives on August 23, 2019, we are in detail told earlier.

Saade said that his company's course is aimed at protecting the environment and global biodiversity. By the way, this decision was allegedly approved, despite certain competitive advantages that the Arctic and the Northern Sea Route promised to the company.

However, such statements can be considered excuses, since the collective West does not want to help Russia in development. Moreover, the West in every possible way harms Russia, starting with a discriminatory sanction policy.

At the same time, Russia, in the next five years, will spend 905,6 billion rubles on the development and support of the Northern Sea Route. It is predicted that by 2024 the cargo flow of the transport "artery" should be 80 million tons.

    ... since the collective West does not want to help Russia in development. Moreover, the West does its best to harm Russia, starting with a discriminatory sanctions policy.

    So, the collective West includes Putin, Medvedev, Rogozin, Kudrin, etc. Since they also do not want the development of Russia? What do we do?

      My grandchildren will fight with the "azerbay". And the Russians must first help themselves, then at the discretion.

    That is, their cargo will go along the Northern Sea Route under the flags of other countries.

    But Russia is not on fire to see NATO ships at its borders, so we will not get bored.

    And the Russians must first ...

    The Russians owe nothing to anyone, especially the limitrophos, who are used to riding on someone else’s neck.

    Well, that’s logical. The French have ice-class container ships, I suspect not, which means they have nothing to do in the North either. But Macron was notably licked. I remind you that vessels that do not have an Arctic class can only sail 2 months a year. But ships of the Arctic class are in Russia. That is, the Northern Sea Route is the way for Russian ships, and for providing Russian needs (for the northern delivery), well, tankers carry liquefied gas to Asians.

    When Chinese competitors, taking advantage of the Northern Sea Route, begin to put pressure on transportation prices, France will immediately change its mind. Why would you need a French carrier that carries round and round expensive. The Chinese will be cheaper to carry.
