The Cotunav (Compagnie Tunisienne de Navigation) base in Tunisia, since its launch in 1959, carried out various strategic missions that allowed it to gain international fame and recognition. Anticipating the changes in the world commerce, in 1997 Cotunav started a strategic plan to face the challenges of free competition and become one of the best companies in the field.
Buying the ship “Cartagine” Car Ferry in June 1999, the company improved the comfort and the standard on board its passenger ships to offer to its loyal passengers an even better service during high season and attract more passengers during low season.
Cotunav completed the renovation of the fleet buying the ship Tanit, specifically built following precise instructions given by the company. The connection to Tunisia is guaranteed with numerous weekly ferries, and other ferries are also used in route to Tunisia from Marseille.
