Boluda Corporación Marítima’s shipping company achieved positive resluts attending the trade fair for the first time
Spanish hotel chains in Cape Verde receive a wide selection of fruit and vegetables via the regular service provided by Boluda Lines since 2017
Boluda Corporación Marítima’s shipping division Boluda Lines obtained highly positive results from its first attendance at the Feira Internacional de Cabo Verde (FIC) with its own stand. Boluda was the only company in the sector in Spain taking part in this trade forum, held in the capital of the republic Praia, located on the island of Santiago, from 14 to 18 November 2018. The Boluda Lines stand was visited by the Prime Minister, Ulisses Correia e Silva; the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance, Olavo Garcia Correia; Minister for Foreign Affairs, Communities and Defence Luís Filipe LópesTavares, and the Spanish ambassador to Cape Verde, María Dolores Ríos.
The 22nd edition of this exhibition gave Boluda Lines the opportunity to utilize personalized attention to expand its customer base, as the fair brings together the main players in the economic sector of this African island state, located off the coast of Senegal in the Atlantic Ocean.
Boluda Lines attended the Cape Verde trade fair as part of the shipping company’s commitment to expand its commercial contacts with this state since opening a commercial line in 2017 between Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and the Cape Verde ports of Palmeira, Sal Rei, Praia and Mindelo. Boluda Lines also has a regular line connecting the Canary Islands with Mauritania and Senegal.
In fact, since last year Cape Verde has received a wide variety of Spanish fruit and vegetables supplied to Spanish hotel chains, receiving faster logistic solutions, with regular shipments in 40ft reefers.
Boluda Corporación Marítima’s comprehensive transport logistics and international cargo management division continues to advance its commercial strategy of service expansion and internationalization, with 14 lines. In addition to linking the Canary archipelago with Cape Verde, its maritime routes connect the Iberian Peninsula with the Canary and Balearic Islands, and the Canary archipelago with northern Europe, Italy and the west coast of Africa, and also include a Paraná-Paraguay Waterway Line in Latin America.
