A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk) has announced a new transport option that would connect the expanding Tunisian market to its mainliner services to and from Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.
Maersk noted that the new weekly service started recently and is operated with a dedicated RoRo vessel between the Port of Rades and the connecting hub port of Cagliari in Italy. Furthermore, the weekly service offers a good connection between Morocco and Tunisia.
Ruben Moratinos, Maghreb Head of Sales at Maersk, said: “Our new offering is reducing the transit times to and from Tunisia significantly while also adding reliability and efficiency to the supply chains of our customers in this important market.
“This new solution will also allow us to connect the Eastern part of Algeria as from January 2024 with the reopening of the port of Annaba which will boost the Intra-Mediterranean trade.”
According to Maersk, the RoRo vessel will leave the Port of Tunis Rades (Tunisia) every Friday evening, calling the Cagliari (Italy) on Saturday and connecting with our hub Port in Tangier (Morocco) on Thursday.
Maersk has built a comprehensive range of value-added services for customers in Tunisia, including the provision of a bounded warehouse, airfreight, less than container load cargo (LCL), supply chain, and 4PL solutions.
Maersk noted that customs service, inland transportation, insurance, depot services, and cold chain logistics are some of the other integrated logistics services that improve customer satisfaction.
