[ April 7, 2017   //   ]

CMA CGM subsidiary, MacAndrews, is launching a new ro ro service Bilbao in Spain and Poole through a space purchase agreement with Brittany Ferries. Branded Macpak (a name last used to market a container service between Southampton and Bilbao which started in the 1970s) it provides a door to door transit time of four days between Spain and UK and opens up more opportunities for the fresh produce exporters in Murcia, Valencia and Almeria.

It runs twice-weekly departing Bilbao every Monday and Thursday and arriving the following Saturday and Tuesday respectively and complements MacAndrews’ existing seven lo lo services from Bilbao to ports in the UK and Ireland.

MacAndrews has also appointed a new dedicated ro ro business development manager, Matthew Kirkland.
