Italia Marittima adds to Shortsea Services

Tuesday, April 11, 2006
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 (IMS). 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.
