Containerships Launches New Black Sea Service
Finnish short-sea shipping specialist Containerships has started a new Black Sea Express service linking Russia with Turkey.
The new service will offer a direct link between the Russian port of Azov and Turkey via ports of Istanbul (MARDAS) and Gemlik (RODAPORT), with further connections to North African countries.
The service will start on August 20, and will run every 10 days thereafter.
The Black Sea Express service will provide indirect links to Libya’s ports of Misrata and Al Khums, Tunisian ports of Bizerte and Annaba, and Algeria’s port of Algiers.
