Tirrenia CIN Closed the Catania – Naples RoRo Link Due to Insufficient Demand

As from this week, Tirrenia – Compagnia Italiana di Navigazione (Moby group) is no longer operating the regular roro line between the ports of Catania, in Sicily, and Naples, in Campania. The announcement was sent to the road haulers last week.

“This line was opened in June 2018 following the request coming from the market and Tirrenia has strongly supported it with important investments. Today we are forced to interrupt the operation in the light of the lack of sufficient traffic to support the line economically. The other maritime connections will continue as planned” the company said.

On the Catania – Salerno route Grimaldi Group will remain the only player active, while Cartour currently deploys a roro ship on the Messina – Salerno link.
