PENDIK, Turkey: January 08, 2019. P&O Ferrymasters has launched new intermodal services from the Turkish ports of Pendik, Ambarli and Mersin to Italy's Free Port of Trieste, with onward connections to its European intermodal network.

The new services – with departures six times a week in both directions – will connect with rail links from the port of Trieste to P&O Ferries’ continental hubs at Rotterdam and Zeebrugge, for transit times of less than a week between Turkey and the Northern Europe hubs.

PO ferrymastersWim 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 certainty on transit times and reduce their transport costs because of the partnerships we have put in place.”

John Freyne, P&O Ferrymasters’ Intermodal Business Development manager added: “We expect Turkey, where we opened our first office last summer, to become an important hub as we focus on supporting new trade lanes both with road transportation solutions and the introduction of highly sustainable Intermodal assets.”

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 payload of up to 25 tons.

P&O Ferrymasters serves 21 strategic locations in 13 countries across the continent, operating integrated road, rail and sea links via a fleet of 5,000 trailers and containers. The company also owns a rail terminal in the Romanian city of Oradea, which facilitates the onward movement of goods to Britain from Asian countries via the Silk Road.
