It thus opens up new development opportunities for its customers located in Central and Eastern Europe, thanks to rail and road intermodal solutions, mainly via Koper. It also allows connections to the rest of the world via its port hub in Malta, thus reaffirming its local commitment and its desire to develop it, emphasised a release.

With the ADRINAF service, the Group reinforces its intra-Europe and Mediterranean "CMA CGM short sea" offer, which is comprised of 33 services operating 63 vessels and making over 300 calls per week.
