Second MSC ro-ro link

MSC is set to introduce a frequent ro-ro link between Izmir and Trieste

Following its introduction of ro-ro services linking West African ports, Antwerp and Le Havre, MSC is set to introduce a ro-ro service in the Mediterranean, this time linking Turkish ports with Trieste, a route that has become extremely busy for rail-ro distribution thanks to Alternative Transport (Ekol, UN Ro Ro), Samer and combi-rail operators.

As of 3rd April MSC will provide a twice weekly connection between Izmir and Trieste. The new liner service is aimed at trailers, containers, and high and heavy rolling loads.

MSC has been serving the Turkish-Trieste market with lo-lo services for over 20 years. Details about schedules and rate details for the new ro-ro service have yet to be announced.

However, it is understood that MSC will operate the service with two con-ro vessels from Ignazio Messina. At the same time, long-standing rumours in Genoa port circles that MSC will take a 49% in Messina are back on the table, with one source saying a deal will be concluded before Easter.
