Chiquita’s Great White Fleet no longer calls in at Italy
Chiquita’s boats will no longer sail the Mediterranean Sea. The multinational has made a deal with Maersk Line for the routes to Italy. Stefano Di Paola, manager of Great White Fleet, talked about this in an interview with The Medi Telegraph. The white fleet still sails the routes to Northern Europe and North America. There are no plans to change that.
“We have four boats, but we charter an additional six,” Stefano says. Two boats have room for 400 reefers, two for 600 reefers, and the two remaining boats offer room to 800 reefers. There are no plans to remove our own boats from the routes to Northern Europe. “In Northern Europe we’ll continue to operate with the boats we have, which sail to a home port near Rotterdam with a capacity of 15,000 pallets. The goods go to Central Europe or Scandinavia and Finland.”
