Ferrol, Spain (PortSEurope) June 4, 2018 – Shipping company MacAndrews has started operating a regular container line linking Ferrol port to Seville and the British port of Tilbury.
The service will be operated with the “JRS Capella” ship, 129 metres-long, which will load and unload containers in the outer dock of Caneliñas.
The port hopes that the route will “boost the economy of the area” by offering Galicia “a container terminal that is the largest in the Atlantic coast of southern Europe” with connections to several countries.
Container terminal Yilport Ferrol belongs to the Yildirim Group, “one of the main container operators in the world,” said the port authority (Autoridad Portuaria de Ferrol-San Cibrao), noting that MacAndrews, part of the CMA CGM group, is “one of the oldest shipping companies in Europe”.
