• The shipping agents for the ships, which are operated by the shipping company TransMed Express, are Marmedsa in Spain and Marmedsa Bemarine in Algeria.
  • Noatum Terminal Castellón was the terminal in Spain, thereby completing the Noatum group’s involvement in the operation

Madrid, 02 July 2020 – Three ships operated by the shipping company TransMed Express (TME) with the shipping agents Marmedsa Noatum Maritime and Marmedsa Bemarine, which both belong to the Noatum group, carried out three simultaneous loading and unloading operations in the ports of Castellón and Bejaia (Algeria) on 22 June.

The vessels MV Herbeira and MV Bremer Johanna loaded their goods at the Noatum port terminal in the port of Castellón, and the third ship, the MV Sonreiras, unloaded in the port of Bejaia (Algeria).

These ships, which are operating on a rotating basis as temporary replacements for the MV Caribana Express which is undergoing maintenance, show the strength of TransMed Express in this traffic, and the support that the Noatum group can provide in this service. In total, the combined operations involved multiple conventional shipments and containerised cargo.

“Operations like this one show our clients that at Noatum we can offer multiple comprehensive solutions for transporting all types of goods between Spain and Algeria, with highly professionalised management in all the services we provide,” says Rafael Soler, Regional Director of the Levante area of Noatum Maritime, and the manager of TME in the Noatum group.

The three ships were operated by Transbulk Shipping, whose general agent is Marmedsa, which has extensive experience and is well equipped to handle Intra-Med traffic.

The sales teams of Marmedsa Castellón, Valencia and Algiers, and the entire operations team of Marmedsa, Noatum Terminals and Marmedsa Bemarine in Castellón, Bejaia and Algiers have worked together successfully on the smooth running of these and other port calls in recent weeks.
