CMA CGM Air Cargo has a new chief executive with Guillaume Lathelize taking over from Olivier Casanova.

The shipping group confirmed the move to Air Cargo News but declined to provide further details.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Lathelize’s background is in shipping, most recently holding the position of vice president global commercial at CMA CGM.

Prior to that, he was vice president for shortsea lines and before that vice president north-south lines.

In total, he has worked for the CMA CGM Group for more than 15 years.

Before joining CMA CGM, Lathelize worked for shipping lines Delmas and SDV.

Casanova held the role of chief executive for just over a year and last week spoke at the IATA World Cargo Symposium under the job title.

At the event, he spoke of closer integration along the supply chain but added that each mode has a specific role to play.

Casanova will return to his previous role as deputy chief financial officer at CMA CGM.

Earlier this year, CMA CGM Air Cargo announced a ten-year partnership with Air France KLM covering the operation of freighters.
