The Italian roro shipping company Ignazio Messina & C. has welcomed the latest entry in its fleet. JOLLY BLUE is the name of the vessel recently bought from Toll Group by MSC Group trough the subsidiary Conglomerate Maritime Ltd and has reached the sister ship JOLLY EXPRESS which was already subchartered to Messina line last year.
Both ConRo vessels, each with a 2,500 lane metres capacity, are deployed on the Tunisia – Italy routes. More specifically JOLLY BLUE is deployed on the Tunis-Gioia Tauro-Naples rotation while the JOLLY EXPRESS calls at the ports of Tunis, Naples and Genoa.
The last new entry in Ignazio Messina’s fleet will replace the veteran ro-ro CHODZIEZ (1988) whose charter is set to expire in the coming months.
