The shipping division Boluda Lines presented at the International Logistics and Material Handling Exhibition (SIL) its new image and the extension of the eight present routes with weekly services between Africa, Spain and Italy.

Alicia Martín, Managing Director of Boluda Corporación Marítima, today presented the shipping division Boluda Lines at the International Logistics and Material Handling Exhibition (SIL). This new brand, operational from this year, brings together the marine services that the group has hitherto provided through Naviera Pinillos, Naviera Fos, Naviceuta, Nenúfar Shipping and Ocean Express. “Bringing these lines together under a single identity ties in with our mission to optimise our efforts and offer a comprehensive service focused on quality, safety and personalised attention, so as to provide a comprehensive response which is at the same time fine-tuned to suit the needs of each customer”, she explained.

Boluda Corporación Marítima is currently one of the major groups in the marine sector. Its shipping division operates eight regular commercial routes, linking the Canary Islands, the Iberian Peninsula, Italy, the Balearic Islands and the west coast of Africa. To these services will be added a new route providing a weekly link between the West African ports of Agadir, Layounne, Dakhla, Nouadhibou, Nouakchott and Dakar, and the Canary Islands, the Iberian Peninsula and Italy. “The west coast of Africa is an area of special interest to us, and in fact we have been present there since 2000. Now we are going to boost our activity by creating a shipping network that will facilitate trade between the European and African continents”.

For providing all these services, Boluda Lines has a fleet of 14 container carriers, ro-los and ro-ros, with a combined capacity of some 300,000 TEUs and nearly 3,000 lineal metres.

Together with marine transport, Boluda Corporación Marítima also provides its customers with integrated intermodal services through Boluda Ships Agency & Forwarding and Boluda Terminales Marítimas.
