Grimaldi strengthens services between Italy and Greece

Third ship in the Venice-Bari-Patras service. Major capacity on the Brindisi-Igoumenitsa route

Next Wednesday the Grimaldi group will enter a third ship in its Venice-Bari-Patras service: the Eurocargo Cagliari, which has a transport capacity of rolling stock equal to 3,850 linear meters, will in fact flank the two units Eurocargo Alexandria and Eurocargo Genoa already operating on the route. With the introduction of the third ship, Grimaldi will offer additional departures from Patras to Bari and Venice (on Wednesdays at 8.00 am), from Venice to Bari and Patras (on Fridays at 18.00), from Bari to Patras (on Saturdays at 18.00) and from Bari to Venice (on Thursday at 04.00). In total, the service will count eight departures per week from each of the three ports.

In addition, since last Wednesday the Grimaldi group has introduced on the Brindisi-Igoumenitsa route the ro-pax ship Igoumenitsa, which can carry about 800 passengers and 3,120 meters rolling stock liners, replacing Florencia, used temporarily on the line, thus increasing the transport capacity with 1,100 more linear meters dedicated to cargo and about 100 cabins (and 70 beds) more available to passengers and drivers. The Igoumenitsa part every day from Brindisi at 13.00 with arrival scheduled at Igoumenitsa at 21.30. From the Greek port, however, are provided daily departures at 23.59, arriving at the Adriatic port at 9.00 am the following day.
