Maersk starts operating Almería-Algeciras container line

Almería, Spain (PortSEurope) June 21, 2018 – Danish shipping company Maersk has started operating at Almería port, where it will offer a weekly logistics service that will connect the harbour to the cargo redistribution ‘hub’ of Algeciras by means of two vessels with a capacity of about 450 TEUs each.

The line that will connect Almería and Algeciras in a time of 12 hours through a feeder vessel will serve mainly to support the transport of materials of the multinational dedicated to the building materials produced by Spanish company Cosentino, which is based in Cantoria (Almería).

However, the port authority is in contact “with all productive sectors of the province and the hinterland”, as are the auxiliary industry of agriculture and the sector of natural stone and its derivatives, which now have “new possibilities for the transport of goods”.

The vessels assigned to the service are the ‘BF Caroda’ and the ‘Max Loyalty’. The new logistic connection will allow transporting the cargo that arrive at the port of Almería to Algeciras “in a record time” as well as helping to “improve the ‘transit time’ of the exports”.
