Freight ferries to Greece

The large number of islands that make up Greece means that sea transport is of paramount importance to the Greek economy. Freight ferries to Greece depart from a number of European countries including Italy, Cyprus and Israel. Bookings on these routes can be made on +44 20 82063420 from Monday to Saturday. Bookings are available to both private vehicles and commercial freight.

The largest number of freight ferries to Greece depart from Italy. The relatively short journey across the Adriatic Sea makes these routes the most convenient way to transfer freight from Italy to Greece. The Greek island of Corfu is one of the most popular destinations. Freight ferries from Italian ports such as Bari, Brindisi and Venice sail to Corfu.

In addition to Corfu, freight ferries to Greece also arrive in Igoumenitsa and Patras from these Italian ports. Igoumenitsa is well-connected to northern Greece by the new Egnatia Highway, while Patras is an economical centre in its own right; it is the third biggest city in Greece. In addition to the three Italian ports already mentioned, there is also a route from Ancona to Patras,

Cyprus and Israel have freight ferries to Greece from only one port of departure in each country. Ferries depart from Haifa in Israel, stopping in the Cypriot port of Limassol and finally arriving in the Greek port of Piraeus.

This route is operated by Salamis Lines and there are departures twice weekly. Piraeus is one of the busiest ports in Europe and is essentially the port serving the capital, Athens, which is a short drive away. Travellers might find the port crowded but the facilities in the port are more than satisfactory.
