Update: New Greece to Black Sea loop operated by Italia Marittima and UFS

In addition to last week’s news announcing the launch of a new Greece to Black Sea service by Evergreen Marine, it now turns out that the service is a joint operation of the Evergreen affiliate Italia Marittima and United Feeder Services.

Each of the two companies will provide one ship. Italia Marittima will contribute the recently-chartered 977 teu BFP MELODY and UFS brings in the 1,155 teu MURAT K .

The weekly ‘East Black Sea’ service starts operations this week-end and it calls at Piraeus, Istanbul, Poti and Novorossiysk. One round trip takes 14 days.
