According to The Box That Changed the World, co-written by JOC Editor Joseph Bonney, "Saade preferred the flexibility offered by short-term, regional vessel-sharing agreements." Unlike Aponte, who has made no significant acquisitions since founding MSC in 1970, CMA CGM is experienced in acquisitions, which enabled it to take on larger deals such as APL and, just recently, the regional European operator Containerships. Saade had ensured a seamless transition to a new generation of family leadership by grooming, over many years, his son Rodolphe as a company leader. On his 80th birthday in February 2017, Saade named Rodolphe CEO. Rodolphe became chairman in November. Since then, Rodolphe has established himself as an active CEO, pushing his managers to innovate and, in doing so, pushing the boundaries of the container shipping business in the relatively limited way that carriers have defined it for years. The company was an early investor in Traxens, a pioneer in connected containers. Earlier this year, CMA CGM launched a technology incubator based in Marseilles called Ze Box, a separate venture fund, and a global tea. In early May, CMA CGM announced plans to acquire 25 percent of CEVA Logistics, a third-party logistics firm in an effort to build end-to-end logistics capability, a strategy also being pursued by the No. 1 container carrier Maersk. Rodolphe was involved in all of those moves, in addition to the negotiations in 2016 to create the Ocean Alliance with OOCL, Cosco Shipping, and Evergreen Line, showing how the company had already entered a new era. Rodolphe had taken a leading role in the acquisition of Neptune Orient Lines, which included the container carrier APL, in 2016. The acquisition of a storied trans- Pacific brand with a reputation for offering premium services and high-end customer service is allowing Rodolphe and the APL team led by CEO Nicolas Sartini and trans-Pacific head Ed Aldridge, president of APL North America, to experiment with premium services such as guarantees of equipment, no-rolling options, and an expedited trans-Pacific eastbound service in competition with Matson.
