“We expect this new service to improve the efficiency and competitiveness of the transportation options provided to our customers from industrial, agricultural and FMCG segments in the northern part of Spain though reliable and competitive product offering. This goes beyond ocean and also includes intermodal, logistics and services products and customs house brokerage, to name only a few”, adds Diego Perdones.

By introducing the new service connecting Gijón, Maersk aims to contribute to the development of a wider area including Asturias, as well as hinterland locations, such as León, Palencia, Valladolid, Zamora or Salamanca, effective improving the coverage in the north-western parts of Spain.
