The group strengthens its position in the Moroccan port it also has been providing towing services since 2005
Boluda Corporación Marítima, through the Societe du Lanamage in Detroit, where it participates alongside the African roll-on/roll-off operator Comarit, has been awarded the pier contract for the port of Tangier Med and its roll-on/roll-off area. For the next ten years the corporation will run cargo ship loading and unloading services using innovative equipment formed by two latest-generation pilot crafts, two pier boats and three vehicles.
Currently, Boluda Corporación Marítima provides services to several ports both nationally and internationally: Tenerife, Huelva, Reunion, Douala (Cameroon) and Saint Peter (Ivory Coast).
The port of Tangier Med has become the company’s main Moroccan investment to position itself as a port powerhouse in the Mediterranean. With the awarding of this contract, Boluda Corporación Marítima strengthens its position in a harbour where it has been a major player since 2005, when it was awarded a 25-year concession for towing and port assistance. This service continues in full force thanks to four 60-ton towboats with anti-pollution equipment and fire-fighting systems, as well as three pilot crafts to guarantee assistance and service to cargo ships docking at the pier.
The African continent is an expanding market in world trade and an area of great interest for Boluda Corporación Marítima, as it has set up business in several cities in Senegal, Morocco and Mauritania.
