Boluda Lines launches a new line between Spain, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.

Boluda Lines, the maritime transport division of Boluda Corporación Marítima launched on 3 April a new short sea shipping service for containers between the ports of Santander, Tilbury (United Kingdom) and Rotterdam (Netherlands). According to the shipping company, this new service "will offer a very competitive alternative for the transport of containerised cargoes compared to road transport, with greater reliability and a substantial reduction inCO2 emissions per tonne-mile".

The line will be operated by a feeder vessel with a nominal capacity of 800 TEU, which will sail weekly from the Santander container terminal. The transit time will be three days to the London Container Terminal at the port of Tilbury and a further two days to the port of Rotterdam. This new line is added to the one that connects Santander and Vilagarcía, Leixoes, Setúbal, Cádiz and the main ports of the Canary Islands with Liverpool and Dublin since September 2023, which is already operating at full capacity.

Boluda Maritime Terminals Santander was inaugurated by the shipping group in April 2023, with an investment of close to 40 million euros. The planned capacity for the first five years of operation of this terminal was around 35,000 TEU per year, but the expansion being carried out this year will allow it to handle more than 250,000 TEU per year.

Boluda Shipping also offers three rail services connecting Santander with the cities of Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia and Cadiz. With the opening of this new commercial line, three additional services will be launched.
Boluda Lines offers freight services from the Spanish mainland through the Canary Islands and on to West Africa, allowing importers and exporters in Northern Europe the possibility of extending their connections and operating in these regions. With extensive experience in these markets, the company operates more than six regular lines in this strategic area.
