The new regular RoRo line, set to be active from next October, linking the Italian port of Trieste with Damietta in Egypt, has been officially presented at the Fruit Logistica exhibition in Berlin, Germany.

The business partners of the initiative will be the Samer Group, DFDS shipping line, HHLA PLT Italy as the terminal operator, the local inland terminal of Interporto di Trieste, and SDAG, the freight forwarding company Trimar.

The transit time for sea transport will be roughly 70 hours and will be combined with rail services to and from Central and Northern Europe. Preclearing will also be another key factor, utilizing blockchain and document digitalization procedures. The vessel due to be deployed has a capacity of 200 semitrailers.
