U.N. Ro-Ro opens new line to Greece’s Patras Port
U.N. Ro-Ro, the leading ro-ro company operating intermodal transport, has started sailing from Istanbul’s Pendik Port to Patras Port. Patras is the most important port in south-eastern Greece.
With this new ro-ro line between Pendik and Patras, customers of U.N. Ro-Ro will be able to transport their units to and from Turkey and Greece, and from Greece to Europe. With this line, transit time and cost advantages would be maintained for companies doing transport through Greece.
The initial sailing schedule between Pendik and Patras includes voyages in both directions. Departures from Pendik are on Friday evenings, arrivals to Patras are on Sunday mornings. Departures from Trieste are early on Saturday mornings with arrivals to Patras late on Sunday afternoons.
The first one-way ticket for the intermodal train will be free of charge for new customers of U.N. Ro-Ro and for all logistics companies who would like to load their units to the Patras-Trieste and Trieste-Patras lines.
In cooperation with Grimaldi Lines, a company with regular sailings from Patras to Venice, Bari, Ancona, Genoa and Ravenna in Italy and to Spain, Tunisia and Morocco via Italy, all customers of U.N. Ro-Ro would be able to use those new transport routes in the Mediterranean.
In the coming days, U.N. Ro-Ro will continue its growth with new investments. In 2018, the company will lengthen its two ro-ro ships to increase the vessel capacity and efficiency, which will offer significant opportunities to all logistics companies.
