CAVA offers an excellent connection between the Spanish east coast, northern Europe and Saint Petersburg – with superb transit times.

Germany’s short sea shipping company OPDR announced yesterday its new CAVA service, starting on June 7th.

This unique service connects the Spanish east coast with important northern European ports, including Saint Petersburg. It will further increase OPDR’s weekly sailings from the Iberian Peninsula to significant Northern European ports to 23 sailings per week.

OPDR introduces new service: CAVA

The new service links the two major Spanish ports Valencia and Cartagena to four of the main ports in northern Europe: Tilbury, Antwerp, Rotterdam, and Saint Petersburg.

Therefore, the new CAVA service is particularly interesting for customers in the business of fast moving goods, such as producers and exporters of fruits and vegetables, retailers or wine traders. The provided transit times rank among the best in the market: Cartagena is linked to Tilbury in only 5 days and Saint Petersburg is reached only 6 days later – including two stopovers in Antwerp and Rotterdam. This does not only underline OPDR’s ability of adapting quickly in a competitive market, but also its role as a leading short sea shipping company.

OPDR will start the new service on June 7th in Valencia, followed by Cartagena, before it proceeds on his way to the north the following day. All ships deployed in this service are equipped to carry pallet-wide equipment, providing a competitive advantage since it allows the customers to ship more goods per container.
