Almeria ready to ship to Southampton

Almeria, Spain, and Southampton, United Kingdom, are almost ready for the launch of the much anticipated maritime line between both ports, which will start operating during the coming campaign, as soon as production volumes are large enough to justify its use. Months of negotiations and agreements may come to a close next week, when representatives of the Port of Almeria, the Chamber of Commerce and maritime transport and fruit and vegetable firms will travel to the English City to formalise their support to this new regular line supplied by Southampton Fruit Handling.

The event is meant to be a great sign of support to the agreement which will facilitate the maritime shipment of fruits and vegetables via the port. The Spanish delegation has been invited by Hampshire's Chamber of Commerce, with meetings being planned between them and Hampshire's entrepreneurial and political representatives.

The agreement will be formalised with the signing of a pact between both Chambers of Commerce. The British side will be represented by numerous importers of fruit and vegetables from Southern England and several cruise line companies.

The event has been organised by representatives of Southampton Fruit Handling (SFH). This company proposed a short sea shipping integral project for the transport of fruits and vegetables in refrigerated containers between both ports, aimed primarily at providing the best possible conditions for the supply of the British market. The Port of Southampton has years of experience in the transport of perishable products from southern Europe to the United Kingdom, which is a guarantee of a good, quality service.
