The Spanish Port of Sagunto has been incorporated into the Amsterdam-based shipping line’s Medliner multipurpose service that connects the Mediterranean with the Americas.
The route in question links now the following ports – Izmit, Monfalcone, Porto Marghera, Genoa, Sagunto, Chester, New Orleans, Palm Beach, Houston, Altamira, and Veracruz (the last one also added recently).
Spliethoff’s Scheldegracht is scheduled to call for the first time at Sagunto on June 5th.
The Medliner service is focused on carrying over the Atlantic various break-bulk goods, such as steel or forestry products, as well as project cargo, e.g. yachts, but also can take on-board dry bulk in big bags.
