Italia Marittima is to launch a new service linking its Mediterranean hub, Taranto Container Terminal
, with Algiers. The so-called ALS service is expected to commence on 9 May. A chartered vessel of 369TEU will offer sailings every nine days.
In addition to providing a feeder link with the Evergreen Group
’s global services, Italia Marittima will also be offering a regional service linking Algiers with Italy
Italia Marittima already operates three feeder services based
on Taranto, namely the Tunis - Malta Service
(TMS), the Greece
- Turkey Service
(GTS) and the Intra-Mediterranean Service
As its name suggests, the TMS service links Taranto with Tunis and with the Marsaxlokk container terminal in Malta
. An additional call at Catania is to be added in early April when the port rotation will become Taranto – Tunis – Marsaxlokk – Catania -Taranto.
The GTS schedule offers the following port rotation: Taranto – Piraeus – Kumport – Haydarpasa – Gemlik – Thessaloniki/Salonica – Izmir – Taranto.
The IMS service offers the port rotation: Taranto – Alexandria – Limassol – Ashdod – Mersin – Taranto.
Italia’s four Mediterranean services
are complemented by a range of third-party feeders covering the Adriatic and the Black Sea.
