“This new connection is also an efficient link for goods arriving in Spain from Western Africa, South America and the United States, which are for Turkey and Greece,” the company said.

Three 2,500 TEU vessels operate the following rotation: Valencia, Castellon, Barcelona (Spain), Fos sur Mer (France), Thessaloniki (Greece), Istanbul, Izmit, Gemlik, Aliaga (Turkey), Cagliari (Italy) and Valencia.
