• Hall 2, stand D6 – “Grimaldi Recruitment” for the selection of seafarers


Naples, 5 March 2024: The Grimaldi Group has once again confirmed its participation in LETExpo - Logistics Eco Transport Trade Show, the fair dedicated to sustainable logistics, transport and business services which will take place from 12 to 15 March at the Veronafiere exhibition center in Verona (Italy).

During the event, the Group will present its dense network of maritime connections for the transport of rolling freight and passengers offered with the Grimaldi Lines, Finnlines, Minoan Lines and Trasmed brands, in the Mediterranean basin as well as in the Baltic and North Seas.

Great emphasis will be given to the numerous innovations relating to the services that the Grimaldi Group companies offer to their customers. The recent strengthening of Grimaldi Lines’ Brindisi-Igoumenitsa twice-daily service has already proved successful: here the company has deployed the vessel Europalink, guaranteeing even more transport capacity and comfort on its connections between Italy and Greece. Compared to the ship Igoumenitsa, that she has replaced on the line since 29 February, the Europalink can transport 20% more passengers and approximately 50% more trucks on each voyage. Added to this significant increase in capacity is the enhanced service quality offered to passengers and drivers. The new ship has joined another modern ro-pax unit, the Kydon Palace, on the line where the Grimaldi Group offers two regular daily departures from each of the two ports.

The fair will also be an excellent opportunity to present the ‘dual enhancement’ of Finnlines’ Biscay Line, for the transport of rolling freight between Finland, Germany, Belgium and Spain. The two improvements are the introduction of the port of Vigo among those served by the line and the doubling of the service frequency between Spain and Belgium, now with two scheduled calls per week in the ports of Bilbao, Vigo and Zeebrugge. This way, the Biscay Line – which has maintained its weekly frequency in the other Northern European ports – has brought the Atlantic coasts even closer to the countries bordering the Baltic and Northern Seas, making the interconnection between the various lines operated by Finnlines and the entire Grimaldi Group network even more effective. The line is served by the brand new Finneco I, Finneco II and Finneco III, which – like all the Grimaldi Group Eco-class ships – stand out on account of their high loading capacity and reduced environmental impact.

Representatives from the Grimaldi Group and its subsidiaries Finnlines, Minoan Lines and Trasmed GLE will meet visitors and logistics operators at their exhibition space located in Hall 3 - stand D3.

In addition, in Hall 2 - stand D6 there will be a "Grimaldi Recruitment" stand for the selection of seafarers for various roles in all sections - hotel, engine and deck - who will become part of highly qualified crews employed on modern ships dedicated to the transport of passengers and freight.
