New short-sea option to Iberia

[ November 17, 2015   //   ]

Short Sea operators MacAndrews and OPDR have launched a new weekly liner service between Tilbury, North Europe and the Iberian Peninsula.

The new Portugal & South Spain service (POSS) calls at Tilbury, Dunkirk, Rotterdam, Leixoes, Setubal, Lisbon, Algeciras and Cartagena and is operated by three 700teu vessels. OPDR operates the ships but container slots are equally divided between MacAndrews and OPDR. The operators say the new service increases sailing frequency from four to six per week to and from Portugal.

OPDR became part of CMA CGM short-sea affiliate MacAndrews in July.
