The Huelva-Rotterdam line, run by the Iberian Alveis-Shipping company, will resume, it is scheduled to start on November 28, although the final date will depend on the citrus campaign.
This was revealed to Europa Press by the director of Alveis-Shipping
Juan Riego, who explained that the original scheduled date is November 28 but "it will depend on the citrus season, which is late." So another possible date is December 5.
In this regard, he said that the company works directly with producers and freight, so they are waiting to unify all orders to launch the line, although it already has reserves. Riego has suggested that the first shipments focus on the transport of citrus.
Alveis-Shipping is going to retrieve the Huelva-Rotterdam line, which ceased operations when it belonged to a Dutch company, with a weekly departure of one ship and offering entrepreneurs and exporters an intermodal transport service door to door.
In this sense, the ship, with capacity for about 200 containers, or approximately 4,000 to 5,000 kilos of merchandise, will sail from the port of Huelva on Wednesday, arriving in Rotterdam (Netherlands) on Sunday. Therefore the product (mainly horticultural and dry cargo) would be in the European market on Monday.
Riego also highlighted the personalized service that is offered by this company. This is done by using trucks to collect the goods from exporters, then take them to the ship and once in Rotterdam it is transported to the importer, "door to door", he emphasized.
Similarly, he stressed that the good response from the exporters of the province and according to a newspaper Huelva Información the company "does not rule out launching a second ship later depending on the volume of the goods."
