Company History: American President Lines Ltd. (now simply referred to as APL), along with its parent company CMA CGM, is the world's third-largest container transportation and shipping company, providing more than 80 weekly services. APL operates a container-ship fleet, including 153 container vessels. Formerly a subsidiary of Neptune Orient Lines (NOL), it is now a wholly owned subsidiary of CMA CGM, a global transportation and logistics company engaged in shipping and related businesses based in France. In 1938, the U.S. government took over the management of the Dollar Steamship Co. which was in financial difficulties and transferred their assets to the newly formed American President Lines

Successor/Parent History:
CMA CGM, headquartered in Marseilles, France, was founded in 1996 as a merger of the Compagnie Générale Maritime (CGM) et the Compagnie Maritime d'Affrètement (CMA). Compagnie Générale Maritime (CGM) at one time carried passengers on liners such as the 'Normandy' or the 'France', maintains only its cargo business when the French government decides to privatise it. CMA's industrial plan is selected. Jacques Saadé gets CGM back on an even keel in under a year. CMA and CGM merge in 1999.
