This fast and reliable service will answer the recent growth of trade between Turkey and the Western Mediterranean countries. The ports of the Sea of Marmara, which are located in the North of Turkey between the Aegean and the Black Sea, are now directly connected to Italy, Spain and France with very competitive transit times: Valencia is reached in 5 days from Aliaga, 8 from Barcelona, and in 10 from Fos-sur-Mer.

This new connection is also an efficient link for goods arriving in Spain from Western Africa, South America and the United States, which are for Turkey and Greece.

Three 2,500 TEU-capacity vessels operate the following rotation: Valence, Castellon, Barcelona, Fos sur Mer, Thessaloniki, Istanbul, Izmit, Gemlik, Aliaga, Cagliari and Valencia.
