Maersk Line: Expanding Presence in Canada & Europe with Med-Montreal Express

Maersk Line, the world’s largest shipping company, last month announced the expansion of its product portfolio (Med-Montreal Express) between Europe’s Mediterranean region and Canada to cater for the growing demands of importers and exporters on both sides of the Atlantic.

  • The new service offers direct calls to Montreal and Halifax, upgrading Maersk Line’s Transatlantic coverage, improving product reliability, and catering for growing demands of customers in both Canada and Europe.
  • Flexible connections to and from the Middle East, Africa, and Asia are available to customers thanks to its convenient transhipment options in Algeciras and Valencia via Maersk’s APM Terminals.
  • Product enhancements come as the current CETA and future CPTPP accords are expected to enable tariff-free trades between Canada, the EU, and Asia-Pacific countries.

The exclusive, fully Maersk Line-operated weekly service will be a five-vessel rotation stopping in Salerno and La Spezia (Italy), Fos-sur-Mer (France), Algeciras (Spain), Montreal and Halifax (Canada), and Valencia (Spain).

Other Mediterranean markets will also be conveniently connected to the new service thanks to our integrated transhipment services in Algeciras and Valencia, with consistent products to/from the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. The exclusive Maersk-operated service, the Med / Montreal Express, will have its first sailing on July 2nd, departing from Salerno, Italy, and arriving in Montreal on July 19th.
