Another ro-rail intermodal service from P&O Ferrymasters

The new services - with six weekly sailings a week in each direction - will connect with rail links Trieste to P&O Ferries’ continental hubs in Rotterdam and Zeebrugge, with onward shortsea services to British Isles’ ports where applicable.

 

Wim Blomme, Intermodal Director at P&O Ferrymasters, said: “We are continuing to expand the reach of our services into Eastern Europe and Asia, to where many customers have moved their centres of production. This new link between Turkey and our European network will give them certainty on transit times and reduce their transport costs because of the partnerships we have put in place.”

 

John Freyne, P&O Ferrymasters’ Intermodal Business Development Manager, added: “We expect Turkey, where we opened our first office last summer, to become an important hub as we focus on supporting new trade lanes both with road transportation solutions and the introduction of highly sustainable Intermodal assets. Across Europe and increasingly Asia, too, our customers rely on our services, however seemingly complex their need may be, to just sort it for them.”

 

Customers will be supported by one of the company’s local customs experts in Turkey to help facilitate the import and export of goods to and from the country.

 

It will be possible to transport hazardous cargoes with a payload of up to 25 tons.
