Evergreen Line boosts Greece-Turkey Service

Friday, May 25, 2007
Evergreen Line is to upgrade its Greece-Turkey (GTS) service – currently linking its hub in Taranto, Italy with Piraeus and Thessaloniki in Greece, and Haydarpasa and Gemlik in Turkey – to create two weekly services deploying a combined three vessels. At the end of May the existing two-vessel service will become the GT1 and GT2 services, deploying one and two vessels respectively, providing customers with greater capacity, wider port coverage and improved schedule integrity.

The weekly GT1 service, deploying the Italia Marittima-chartered 698 TEU Agilitas, will have the following port rotation: Taranto - Piraeus - Izmir - Taranto.

The first eastbound sailing is scheduled to depart Taranto, Italy on 26 May. Westbound, the first sailing is due to depart Piraeus, Greece on 28 May. The GT2 service will be operated by the 1,152 TEU LT Bianca and the 1,028 TEU Ital Verde, both owned by Italia Marittima. Port rotation will be: Taranto - Thessaloniki - Istanbul - Haydarpasa - Gemlik - Taranto.

Estimated departure date for the first eastbound GT2 service is 31 May, with the sailing of LT Bianca from Taranto. The first westbound sailing is due to depart Thessaloniki, Greece on 4 June.
