Cádiz, Spain (PortSEurope) October 28, 2020 – In December, Boluda Lines is launching an innovation which will consolidate its leadership in freight transport to the Canary Islands, with a daily service from the port of Cádiz. The new line will operate with six vessels and has a transit time designed with perishable products in mind. The strategic move will bring major improvements in distribution times,
stock and emissions and shelf life of shipped goods. The new maritime route links the Iberian Peninsula and the archipelago, the first time a shipping company has launched such service with the islands. The service will be provided with containerships including 45ft reefer and dry cargo containers specially adapted to transport up to 33 EUR-pallets. The new connection will make improvements in perishable products transport from both the Peninsular and the Canary Islands, as well as for all transit time-sensitive cargo, for which there has been no service meeting these requirements until now. This new line will also allow Boluda Lines to increase its range of services with Africa through its Las Palmas hub port, enabling many fruit and vegetable products originating from the western African coast to be delivered promptly to the Peninsula and central and northern Europe. The vessels will operate at the CONCASA terminal in Cadiz and at Boluda Maritime Terminals, the maritime terminals cluster operated by Boluda corporation in Las Palmas, Tenerife, Fuerteventura and La Palma. To implement the service, they will increase its intermodal connections with southern Spain through a new, pioneering river feeder service connecting with the ports of Seville and Cádiz daily and through daily rail connections from Madrid and other areas on the Peninsula.
