Italy-headquartered Grimaldi has opened a project cargo service linking Vigo, Spain, with Latin America and Africa.


The carrier is represented in Vigo by Bergé and the service will connect the Galician port with Turkey, as well as and other ports in the western Mediterranean, the east coast of Latin America and West Africa, the latter two via Valencia.

The regular liner service will be provided on a fortnightly basis from the Termicar terminal in the port of Vigo. The ro-ro vessels deployed on the service can cater to oversized or extra-heavy cargoes on Mafi roll trailers (up to 24.4 m long). The vessels have ramps of up to 100 tonnes capacity.
