COSCO launches new car transportation service through Piraeus port

Piraeus Port Authority (PPA) and COSCO Shipping Specialised Carriers jointly launched a new car shipment route and service in EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) region aiming to provide high quality service car logistics in the area.

The new service concerns the transportation of vehicles in special containers, with a capacity of three vehicles, called flat rack container, equipped with built-in ramps for easier transportation and placement of the vehicles. These platforms have been certified and can be stacked to a height of 3 boxes.

The first shipment of cars arrived at the Greek port on 21 December, where the vehicles were uploaded to the container terminal to be then transferred to the car terminal for their final destinations.

PPA’s chairman Yu Zenggang pointed out that the new service highlights the value of synergies, "a necessary prerequisite for great outcomes with significant economies of scale and benefits for all stakeholders".
