P&O Ferrymasters launches new intermodal services

Logistics solutions provider P&O Ferrymasters has recently launched the new intermodal services from the Turkish ports of Pendik, Ambarli and Mersin to the Free Port of Trieste in Italy. The new services will have departures six times a week in both directions and will be connected with rail links from the port of Trieste to P&O Ferries’ continental hubs at Rotterdam and Zeebrugge.


P&O Ferrymasters’ customers will be supported by one of the company’s local customs experts in Turkey to help facilitate the import and export of goods to and from the country. It will be possible to transport hazardous cargoes with a load of up to 25 tons.


Wim Blomme, Intermodal Director at P&O Ferrymasters, said: “We are continuing to expand the reach of our services into Eastern Europe and Asia, to where many customers have moved their centres of production. This new link between Turkey and our European network will give them certainly on transit times and reduce their transport costs because of the partnerships we have put in place.”
