Commenting on the service Mr. Ricardo Peña, President of the Port of Pasaia said: “Today we celebrate the launch of a new service with the United Kingdom. The UK is a major market for the port of Pasaia and is our main import and export route. We are especially happy to start a strategic alliance with the port of Tilbury, a major gateway to the South East and London areas. Despite its different sizes, both ports will collaborate in the development of intermodal solutions in the Atlantic Arch and will explore together the business opportunities offered by the complementarity between the economies of the regions, including the centre and the Mediterranean coast of the Iberian Peninsula, which is very well connected by motorway and rail from the Port of Pasaia.”
