German short sea container shipping company Oldenburg-Portugiesische Dampfschiffs-Rhederei (OPDR), a subsidiary of French giant CMA CGM, has revealed its plans to open a new agency in Saint Petersburg, Russia, on August 1.

With this move, the company said that it will reinforce its presence in the Baltic region and further its growth plans in Russia.

OPDR added that it is working on launching a new faster direct reefer service from Morocco to Saint Petersburg.

The new service would link Agadir and Casablanca to Saint Petersburg in eight days.

According to OPDR, the new agency would bring the company in close collaboration with CMA CGM.

The announcements comes less than two months after the company launched its CAVA service to connect the Spanish east coast with Northern European ports.

The CAVA service links the two major Spanish ports Valencia and Cartagena to four of the main ports in northern Europe: Tilbury, Antwerp, Rotterdam, and Saint Petersburg.

OPDR deployed six 1,800 TEU container vessels capable of carrying pallet-wide equipment on the service.
