We are proud to announce that Brointermed Lines and BREB, who since several years have been operating their separate liner services from the Continent to the Mediterranean, have decided to join their operational forces and agreed on a vessel sharing agreement effective as from the end of July 2020. This offers a monthly dedicated multipurpose service linking Bremen, Harwich, Antwerp and La Spezia to the main Algerian and Libyan ports and vice versa. The first sailing will be performed by m/v BREB STAR, exclusively dedicated to this new service, sailing on her maiden voyage from Bremen on the 25th of July.
The two companies expect that this new initiative will generate additional synergies both South and North bound and will soon enable them to increase the frequency of their services by adding a second similar vessel.
“After three successful voyages this year, we are very pleased to be able to offer the BREB STAR as dedicated vessel for this project. We are sure that the future cooperation with Brointermed will be beneficial for our customers.” Arne Ehlers, Managing Director BREB GmbH & Co. KG.
