Ocean Alliance Returns to Port of Venice

The Ocean Alliance is restarting its Med-Far East service from the Port of Venice as from May 2017, after the service was stopped last winter because of a structural drop in demand, the port informed.

The direct service of the Ocean Alliance, formed by China Cosco Shipping, Evergreen Line, CMA CGM and OOCL, will start with the MN APL Oregon ship arriving on the 10th of May at the Vecon terminal in Venice.

As disclosed, the service targets development of the break bulk traffic with the aim of handling up to 2,500 TEU per ship in import and export. The service will employ 10 ships with a capacity of 6,500-6,800 TEU.

In addition, Neptune Lines, a company specializing in automotive cargo, focusing on the Mediterranean and Black Sea area, announced it would start adding the Venice Ro-Port MoS to its Adriatic weekly service having concluded a project with FORD Germany.

Both services were announced at the Break Bulk fair in Antwerp.

Speaking at the event, North Adriatic Sea Port Authority President, Pino Musolino, said that Venice experienced a steady sector growth, recording a 15% increase in last months’ project cargo handling.
