Contship joins Medpac conference as Med US west coast service improves

by Canadian Shipper

Contship Containerlines is boosting its presence in the Mediterranean-North American West Coast trade by joining the Med Pac Conference, following its debut on the route almost two years ago.

The container shipping line entered the trade in July 1999 through an agreement with d’Amico/Italia Line, gaining slots on the service which calls at Valencia, Livorno, Genoa, Cartegena, Long Beach, Vancouver, Portland and Oakland.

The decision to join the Conference follows the improvement of the service from a fortnightly to a ten-day schedule, with the introduction of larger and faster ships.

Contship Containerlines joins existing conference members d’Amico/Italia Line and Zim Israel Navigation.

Contship Containerlines has been in the trade between the Med, US Gulf and Mexico for more than 10 years and currently offers a nine-day service operated by five ships.
