Freeport, Malta (PortSEurope) July 28, 2017 – A new weekly service IndaMed will call at Freeport, linking it with major ports in India, Pakistan, eastern Mediterranean and the Arabian Gulf. IndaMed is operated by three of the world’s largest shipping lines: CMA CGM (France), APL (owned by CMA CGM) and Cosco Shipping (China). The first vessel to service this route, CMA CGM Virginia, which can carry
up to 5,100 TEUs, called at Malta Freeport recently. Malta Freeport Terminals CEO Alex Montebello said, “This new service has further strengthened Malta Freeport’s global connection network as it means we now offer efficient links with 117 ports worldwide. This is not just positive news for the Freeport. It also benefits local and foreign importers and exporters who have unprecedented opportunities to meet their commercial requirements and tap new markets.” Since it was set up in 1988, Malta Freeport has established itself as a major transshipment hub in the Mediterranean. Last year alone, the Freeport handled over three million containers and is continuously investing in new equipment and technologies in its drive to serve as a leading strategic platform for global shipping lines.
