Linking Turkey to Rotterdam and Zeebrugge hubs via Trieste
P&O Ferrymasters has launched new intermodal services from the Turkish ports of Pendik, Ambarli and Mersin to the Free Port of Trieste in Italy, with onward connections to its European intermodal network including Rotterdam and Zeebrugge.
The new services, with departures six times a week in both directions, will connect with rail links from the port of Trieste to P&O Ferries’ continental hubs at Rotterdam and Zeebrugge, giving highly competitive transit times of less than a week between Turkey and Europe’s principal logistics hubs.
P&O Ferrymasters is continuing to expand the reach of its services into Eastern Europe and Asia, to where many customers have moved their centres of production. This new link between Turkey and its European network will give them certainty on transit times and reduce their transport costs because of the partnerships the Company has put in place.
P&O Ferrymasters expect Turkey, where it opened a first office last summer, to become an important hub as it focusses on supporting new trade lanes both with road transportation solutions and the introduction of highly sustainable Intermodal assets.
P&O Ferrymasters’ customers will be supported by one of the Company’s local customs experts in Turkey to help facilitate the import and export of goods to and from the country. It will be possible to transport hazardous cargoes with a payload of up to 25 tons.
