Grimaldi launches a twice-weekly feeder ro-ro service between Antwerp and Cork, as from the beginning of May.
Antwerp is Grimaldi’s main hub in the North of Europe.
Grimaldi Group has been operating in the Republic of Ireland for nearly 25 years with ConRo vessels, linking Cork to Northern Europe and the Mediterranean and, through transhipment in Antwerp to destinations in North and South America, West Africa and Russia.
Through its subsidiary Euromed Ireland Logistics Ltd (EMIL), the Grimaldi Group runs its fully equipped ro-ro/multipurpose terminal at Ringaskiddy (Cork).
The vessel deployed on the Antwerp-Cork service will be the Italian-flagged ro-ro unit EUROCARGO BARI (3,850 lane metres + 200 cars).
The Group plans to add capacity and frequency in the near future.
