New services starting mid-february from Trieste
TRIESTE - New services connecting Trieste’s Pier VII to the Far East will be starting in the next few days. The vessels of “2M” (joint services between Maersk Line and MSC) as well as those of “Ocean three” (alliance between CMA CGM, UASC and China Shipping) are expected to arrive in Trieste on February 16th and 18th.
As already noted during the past few months, the increasing interest for the Adriatic Sea by the major international shipping companies is now confirmed. The Port of Trieste, in particular, is considered very competitive for several reasons: its geographic position, strategic for the South-East European market, its intermodal connections, its natural draft of 18 meters and its port infrastructure of the container terminal where it is already possible to operate simultaneously on two oceanic vessels.
