Two Israeli ports and APM Terminals Castellón have been added to the TMM service of Admiral Container Lines, which now connects Turkey, Spain, Israel, Egypt, and Morocco.
The calls, which began in March with the 980 TEU vessel Admiral Sun, allow a direct connection between Castellón and Israel for the import and export of cargo, mainly for temperature-controlled goods.
The TMM service now connects the ports of Gemlik, Gebze, Istanbul, Izmir, Piraeus, Sousse, Castellon, Valencia, Algiers, Mersin, Haifa, Ashod, Alexandria, Constanta, and Casablanca every 10 days.
"The start of the new service from Admiral, and more specifically, from its agent in Spain, One Ocean Agency, is great news for Castellón," commented Jorge Sorribes, operations manager of APM Terminals Castellón.
"It offers new horizons and new possibilities to the local market, both for the export of the province's key products, such as tiles and their derivatives, and for the import of perishable goods that would otherwise have had to use other ports, resulting in additional costs for the end customer," he added.
