The company has introduced new intermodal services that connect the Turkish Pendik, Ambarlı, and Mersin with the Port of Trieste in Italy, with onward connections to the Dutch Rotterdam and Belgian Zeebrugge.
The new services, on which hazardous goods with a payload of up to 25t can be dispatched, offer six departures/week in both directions.
"We are continuing to expand the reach of our services into Eastern Europe and Asia, to where many customers have moved their centres of production. This new link between Turkey and our European network will give them certainty on transit times and reduce their transport costs because of the partnerships we have put in place," Wim Blomme, Intermodal Director, P&O Ferrymasters, said.To this John Freyne, Intermodal Business Development Manager, P&O Ferrymasters, added, "We expect Turkey, where we opened our first office last summer, to become an important hub as we focus on supporting new trade lanes both with road transportation solutions and the introduction of highly sustainable Intermodal assets. Across Europe and increasingly Asia too our customers rely on our services, however seemingly complex their need may be, to just sort it for them."
