The Port Authority of Cartagena continues to increase its logistics competitiveness by opening a new maritime line for conventional general cargo in the warehouse with the Algerian ports of Tenes and Bejaia.
The operation began on June 13 with the departure of the Sea Rose ship to the Algerian coast with a cargo of 3,000 m 3 of wood panels from Toledo. The forecast is that, in less than 23 hours, the ship will have reached its destination: the port of Tenes, in the province of Chlef (Algeria).

Yolanda Muñoz, president of the Cartagena Port Authority, attended the inauguration of this new line together with the mayor of the Cartagena City Council, Noelia Arroyo; the president of COEC, Ana Correa; and representatives of the Blázquez Maritime Agency, among others.
During her speech, the president of the APC was particularly satisfied with the opening of this new line as it means “an increase in our port services, an increase in the offer we offer our users and also an increase in the line of services more operational and efficient”
It has also announced that two monthly departures will be made in response to the need for demand, so the next service will take place on June 28 or 30 with a direct destination to the Algerian port of Bejaia -.
The Sea Rose ship belongs to the Lebanese company OCMIS Maritime LTD which, from Castellón, maintains a regular line with Algeria. She is a general cargo vessel, 91 meters long, 16 meters wide and has two palletized warehouses 12 x 5 meters high, with access via ramps and elevators to facilitate loading and transport of trucks or semi-trailers.
The new intermodal line will allow the transport of non-perishable goods such as detergents, juices, preserves or cosmetics. Muñoz stressed that this new operation “will allow us to expand the market and carry out import and export operations to and from ports in the Mediterranean, but also in North Africa such as Nador, Egypt or Libya.”
