Trasmediterránea Weapons Shipping Company has reinstated the shifty ship Town of Tazacorte to the Cádiz-Canarias line, after its annual grounding in Astander. Last Saturday, March 26, it came into service in the port of Cadiz, starting its weekly rotation with stops in the ports of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Santa Cruz de La Palma.
The Town of Tazacorte It is the one with the largest cargo capacity of the Spanish merchant fleet. It has 3,400 linear meters in the cellar and on the roof, as well as 209 plugs for the electrical connections of the refrigerated units that maintain the cold chain and guarantee fruit exports from the Canary Islands. Proof of this commitment and support to the sector is the Plátano de Canarias logo in large characters on both sides. The ship maintains a speed of 23 knots, which comfortably guarantees weekly rotation.
The CEO of Naviera Armas Trasmediterránea, Fernando Valhas recently visited the islands of La Palma and Tenerife, together with other directors of the company, and has held several meetings with the producers. As a result of these meetings, the shipping company’s commitment to the Canary Islands banana sector has been strengthened and positions of common interest have been strengthened with the exporters of both islands.
Meetings have been held in Tenerife with Coplaca and in La Palma with Banaguna, Cosepal, Europlátano, Agrícola El Remo, Cupalma and Asprocan. Specially relevant issues have been discussed with all of them, such as the market shares, commitment to local products, mutual support between companies of Canarian origin and the capacity and service of Naviera Armas Trasmediterránea, with the punctuality, reliability and attention it offers its users.
