New RO/RO services in Italy and Spain

Mar 03, 2014
A new RO/RO freight and passenger service is being operated twice-weekly departing from the Italian port of Ravenna on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

This service is additional to those already offered by Grimaldi between Italy and Greece, via the Grimaldi Lines and Minoan Lines brands. Grimaldi Lines already offer daily departures between Brindisi, Igoumenitsa and Patras for goods and passengers as well as a weekly departure from Genoa, Livorno and Catania to Patras for cargo only. In addition, Greek subsidiary Minoan Lines offers direct services from Ancona and Trieste to Igoumenitsa and Patras, six and three times a week respectively.


In January the French operator LD Lines introduced a weekly sailing between Poole and Gijón. The service will leave Poole on Tuesdays with the return leg departing from Spain on Fridays. On 7 January, 2014 LD Lines also launched the first-ever ferry link between Ireland, Western France and Northern Spain - connecting the ports of Rosslare, St.Nazaire and Gijón with a weekly round trip, effective 7 January, 2014. These services are in addition to the successful start of the company’s new Poole-Santander route which commenced in November 2013 operating from Poole on Saturdays and returning from Santander on Sundays, by-passing the weekend HGV driving ban in France.
