OPDR Adds More Calls to Its CISS Service

Hamburg-based Oldenburg-Portugiesische Dampfschiffs-Rhederei (OPDR) optimized its Canary Islands and Iberian Peninsula (CISS) service by offering a direct connection from Leixões, Lisbon and Gibraltar to Hamburg.

The company said that the service would start operating from August with transit times of five, six and eight days, respectively.

Three ships with capacities of 700 TEU each are deployed on the new CISS service.

CISS’ previous schedule offered one direct connection from Portugal to Hamburg.

The revised CISS service underlines OPDR’s plans of reinforcing its activity to and from the United Kingdom. The company currently offers seven weekly connections from the European mainland to the United Kingdom, three of which are attributed to the CISS service – Hamburg to Tilbury once a week, Rotterdam to Tilbury twice a week.

Additional connections from Hamburg and Rotterdam to UK’s Port of Immingham are planned for the fourth quarter of the year.

Port rotation will be: Hamburg – Rotterdam – Tilbury – St. Cruz de Tenerife – Las Palmas de Gran Canaria – Agadir – Casablanca – Gibraltar – Algeciras – Lisbon – Leixões – Rotterdam – Tilbury – Hamburg.
