The first route run by Boluda Corporación Marítima to Portugal is now inaugurated
The containership, operated by Boluda Lines, covers a route from Marín- Las Palmas-Lisboa-Marín
The cargo ship Lola B, belonging to the Boluda Lines fleet, the Boluda Corporación Marítima cargo transport division, has made its first stopover in the port of Lisbon. The company has therefore officially inaugurated the new route it recently launched to respond to the demand from markets in the Canary Islands served by its ships and that of its customers and international operators. The cargo ship, which left Marín this past Friday on route to Lisbon, loaded up at Las Palmas and continued onto Lisbon, where it docked today for the first time.After loading and unloading operations, it continued on to Marín, its final destination where it stops every Friday in order to set sail once again for the Islands. This is the first time that the Boluda Corporación Marítima hasmade a stopover in Portugal, which will now allow the company to service the entire Iberian Peninsula through its national coastal routes.
The containership Lola B has a storage capacity of 650 TEUs and its technical features include a length of 135 metres, a 20-meter beam, and 8.25 meters of draft. What’s more, it can reach speeds of up to 16.5 knots.
By launching this maritime connection, the port of Marín has stepped up its service with an express route to the Canary Islands, at the same time it helps clear up land routes by offering itself as an alternative to highway transport. In addition to covering Northern Spain, the new route will connect the Las Palmas hub port to the ports of Valencia, Alicante, Barcelona, Genoa and Livorno and African ports such as Nouadhibou, Nouakchott, Agadir and Dakar.
