Boluda Corporación Marítima’s comprehensive transportation and international cargo management division Boluda Lines has appointed José María Arassa manager of the Mediterranean line, which covers the route between Barcelona-Valencia-Tenerife-Las Palmas de Gran Canaria-Tenerife-Santa Cruz de la Palma-Alicante-Valencia-Barcelona, with offices in Barcelona, Valencia, Zaragoza and Madrid.

60 year old José María Arassa from Barcelona holds a degree in Information Science and a Master’s degree in Logistics Development from Esade business school. He has proven professional experience in the maritime sector as commercial director in Cataluña and head of commercial strategy development and execution in Nisa Marítima.

Boluda Lines has opted to strengthen commercial management with organisational change, regrouping the commercial division under the direction of Javier García Villena to increase presence in national and international maritime markets. Arassa will be one of Boluda Lines’ new area managers.

“It gives me great satisfaction to be able to contribute to this great company. My experience, together with Boluda’s leading position in maritime services, will help optimize logistic activities and expand our sector and market presence, strengthening strategic alliances with our collaborators” Arassa confirmed.

The shipping division has a fast and efficient fleet and operates ten commercial lines, linking the Iberian Peninsula, the Canary and Balearic Islands, Italy, northern Europe, the west coast of Africa and Cape Verde.

Boluda Lines also has a Project Cargo service for transport of special goods such as ro-ro cargo, outsized or unusual equipment and parts, helicopters, boats, cranes or pipes and any type of large volume operation requiring special treatment or complex logistics.

José María Arassa’s appointment is part of Boluda’s unwavering strategy of attracting talent to strengthen and consolidate its services and leadership position in the market.
