Through its railway container services between Italy and Western Europe P&O Ferrymasters has established a strong position in Italy and we are confident this position will contribute to increasing Containerships’ market share in the trade between Northern Italy, Finland, Russia and the Baltic States”.
Mr. Wim Blomme, Director Intermodal Division of P&O Ferrymasters says: “This agency agreement is enlarging the scope of services and areas we are offering to our Italian customers.
