Setúbal port establishes first ro-ro shipping link between the Mediterranean and North America

The first direct roll-on/roll-off (ro-ro) shipping link between the Mediterranean and North America has been established in Setúbal. Four ships are servicing the connection run by the Grimaldi Group – each with a capacity for 5,500 vehicles. The news means that Setúbal will now be able to receive regular direct cargo carriers from Baltimore, en-route for other ports serviced by the link in Italy, Turkey, Spain and Montenegro.
