New freight link between the ports of Malaga and Tangier Med


The shipping company Peregar started on Monday a new regular cargo link between the ports of Malaga and Tangier Med.

This very important line aims to “contribute to the development of relations between Morocco and Europe and provide services to companies located in the area of influence of the port of Malaga,” said Jose Moyano, director of the Port Authority of Malaga. The 153-meter-long Friedrich Russ ship is providing this service. It leaves the port of Malaga at 2:00 p.m. for Tangier Med, and returns to Malaga the next morning, reports El Estrecho Digital.

For the director of Peregar, Joaquin Perez-Munos Subiris, this shipping line “responds to a historical desire to connect North Africa to Southern Europe and is intended to be a complementary port to Algeciras, to address the problems of congestion in the Strait of Gibraltar. In concrete terms, it will optimize operations, reduce transit times and ultimately contribute to revitalizing the region’s economy.

This new line will allow the transport of goods from the textile, automotive and food sectors. But in the medium term, the transport of passengers will be integrated, he said. This connection “gives security to the logistics agents of maritime transport because they know that there is another line available to them to carry out import-export operations,” said Natalia Sanchez, Vice President of the Confederation of Businessmen of Malaga.
