Med port range extended by Spliethoff
Spliethoff is extending the range of its Medliner service by including the port of Sagunto (Spain). Medliner is the group’s regular liner service from the Mediterranean to the Americas.
Port calls are scheduled for the early part of each month; the company plans to deploy the first vessel - “Scheldegracht”- from Sagunto on 5 June 2017.
Messrs Weco Agencia Maritima is the commercial agent in Spain for the Medliner service. Pieter Flohil, head of Medliner Spliethoff, said: “Weco...will form a valuable extension to Spliethoff’s existing operation in Spain.” Paco Rivero from Weco added: “We are very proud to become part of this project.”
The Amsterdam-based Spliethoff Group, a specialist for project cargo, heavylift, general and ro-ro cargo, as well as yachts, manages a large fleet of over 100 multipurpose, heavylift, ro-ro and semi-submersible vessels ranging from 3,000 dwt to 23,000 dwt. (kd)
