Corsica Linea needs more capacity

By | 2017 Newsletter week 51 | No Comments

Pascal Trojani, leading Corsica Linea, said to Corse-Matin that he is a happy man after a successful year. The summer season has been good, not only for passengers but especially for freight. He says the company has a market share of 60% for the freight coming from and going to Corsica.
The challenge is now the saturation of the vessels. “We need to think about enlarging our capacity. We would like to have a new vessel in two years. We might first need to go on the secondhand market but the ultimate goal is a newbuilt ro-pax with LNG as fuel.”
Corsica Linea has been created by 130 local transport companies, from which 14 companies own 95% of the shares.
