Canary bananas to be shipped to Portugal and northern Spain by Boluda Lines
The shipping company Boluda Lines has reintroduced a stopover in the port of Santa Cruz de La Palma for the maritime shipping route of the North Line. This will allow it to transport Canary bananas from the Canary Islands to Portugal and the north of Spain once a week. This was reported on the website of the shipping company. The shipments "will be carried out on Sundays in refrigerated containers (reefers); a type of transport in which Boluda Lines is highly specialised," they say.
With the incorporation of this "commercial stopover on the island of La Palma, the North Line will be used to transport all types of cargo, both dry and refrigerated, from Santa Cruz de La Palma to Vilagarcía de Arousa, Bilbao and Lisbon, with subsequent stopovers in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Arrecife and Puerto del Rosario."
From now on, "the Canary bananas shipped on Sundays from the port of Santa Cruz de La Palma will arrive on Wednesdays at Boluda Maritime Terminal Vilagarcía de Arousa, on Thursdays at the port of Bilbao, and on Mondays at the port of Lisbon."
So far, Boluda Lines "had been carrying out the maritime transport of Canary bananas through Mediterranean Line 1. In this route, the cargo made a stopover on Tuesdays in Alicante and on Thursdays in Barcelona." With the shipment of Canary bananas though "the North Line, Boluda Lines contributes to improving the fruit's distribution, using two different routes and thus helping consolidate the productivity of the Archipelago's most important crop."
