Subic Bay Freeport Zone: Following the milestone delivery ceremony for its first ever 20,600 TEU container vessel last January 26, 2018, CMA CGM commended HHIC-Phil Inc. for the quality of the ship delivered to the French shipping mogul. In the January 30, 2018 letter to HHIC-Phil Inc., CMA CGM Vice-President Ludovic Gerard extolled the Korean shipbuilder for working closely with their site office that led to the successful construction of the mega boxship. The ship owner also urged HHIC-Phil Inc. to continue exuding the same collaborate spirit to ensure timely completion and even better quality for its two remaining 20,600 TEU container vessels currently under construction at the 326-hectare Hanjin Subic shipyard.
On the occasion of such momentous event, CMA CGM shared its blessings and donated generous amount to Hanjin Integrated School. Mr. Edgardo Garcia, the principal of Hanjin Integrated School, received a check worth USD10,000 from CMA CGM Vice-President Ludovic Gerard. The amount donated will be used to finance the purchase of various educational-related equipment and electronic devices, such as personal computers and television sets, for the use of the students to keep them abreast of the rapid advancement in science and technology and to help facilitate student-teacher classroom interactions.
