CRUISE SHIPS SUPPLY:

Another nice idea for deliveries, is the ships supply in the terminal. Here is a video of this kind of transport:

Alright, I've decided to list some companies in Greece that ship products to Europe, I've personally loaded cargo at some of these companies, and some of them are from colleagues who gave me the info, and from a spreadsheet my company gave the drivers, complete with companies in Greece and their coordinates (GPS doesnt always know the address in Greece). I'll try to provide any info I know, but in some cases I'll just provide the company location. These companies are GUARANTEED to ship transport internationally.
Obviously SCS will have to create mockup names for these companies for copyright reasons etc, so I'll include some names I can come up with.

ΑΓΝΟ, dairy factory.
This factory could be in Thessaloniki ingame, under the mockup name of
Cargo in: packaging, bottles, raw milk. Cargo out: Dairy products (Feta cheese could be made as cargo for Greece)
https://www.google.hu/maps/@40.7324456, ... 6656?hl=en

AGROVIM, Olive oil bottling factory
This factory could be in Kalamata ingame, under the mockup name of ΕΛΑΙΟΒΙΜ
outgoing cargo: olive oil, also olives may be added since Kalamata olives are world famous.
https://www.google.hu/maps/place/AGROVI ... 6261?hl=en

Κ.Ε. ΚΑΛΑΜΑΡΑΚΗΣ Α.Β.Ε.Ε. - ΚΑΛΑΣ Α.Ε, Sea salt production factory
This factory could be in Patras ingame, under the mockup name of Saltco S.A.
Note that the "Hellenic Saltworks S.A. is also nearby, which might also be a good alternative for addition, It has some iconic salt pilled up in hills and stuff.
https://www.google.hu/maps/@38.3977166, ... 6656?hl=en
Cargo out: sea salt.
https://www.google.hu/maps/place/Κ.Ε.+Κ ... 5727?hl=en

Chion S.A
Another sea salt factory, within the city of Patras (not as impressive, but maybe more convenient to make)
https://www.google.hu/maps/@38.2106819, ... 6656?hl=en

Bikos, water bottling factory.
This factory could be in the city of Ioannina, under the mockup name of
cargo in: packaging, cargo out: bottled water.
https://www.google.hu/maps/@39.8583018, ... 6656?hl=en

Colgate Palmolive Hellas, toothpaste and beauty products factory
This factory could be in Athens ingame, near the port of Pireus.
https://www.google.hu/maps/@37.9508489, ... 6656?hl=en

Delatolas Express, logistics company.
This company could be inthe city of Athens. There is a highway service station nearby.
https://www.google.hu/maps/place/DELATO ... 3552?hl=en

Evrofarma S.A., Dairy factory
This factory could be in the city of Alexandroupoli ingame (its about 100 kms from the city but the village its in is not worth including)
https://www.google.hu/maps/place/Evrofa ... 6117?hl=en

Famar S.A., Pharmaceutical company.
This company could be in the city of Athens ingame.
https://www.google.hu/maps/place/Famar+ ... 7551?hl=en

Goldair Handling, Airport, air cargo logicstics center.
This company could be in the "Makedonia Airport" in Thessaloniki ingame.
https://www.google.hu/maps/place/40°31' ... 8372?hl=en

Grecia Fruit, Obviously a company dealing with fruits.
This company could be near Patras ingame. The area is famous for producing oranges, and watermelons.
https://www.google.hu/maps/@38.0189095, ... 6656?hl=en

Kronos S.A., Canned fruits factory
This company could be near Thessaloniki ingame, its a bit further away from the city in reality.
https://www.google.hu/maps/place/Kronos ... 3737?hl=en

Labridis bros S.A., Frozen fruits
This company could be near Thessaloniki ingame, its near the one I mentioned above.
https://www.google.hu/maps/place/Labrid ... 8187?hl=en

Tyras S.A. and Little Acre Farm, Dairy factories, exporting large amounts of Feta cheese.
These companies are very close to each other, they could be in the city of Trikala ingame.
https://www.google.hu/maps/place/TYRAS+ ... 0364?hl=en

So these are what I can do for now, I have a list with about 70 addresses, If someone wants to do some research I can email some pictures of the list. It also includes coordinates to services for refrigerated trailers, ports, container terminals etc.

Really excited to see plans to add Greece. I've just created an account just to answer here.

Lets start with :

1 The absolutely essential no-brainer routes
1.1) Feres - Peiraeus port
https://goo.gl/maps/6aag6xcddvD6PqG97
This route starts from the Turkey Borders and links Greece's 2 major cities, Athens and Thessaloniki
It also contains the 3 new Tempi Tunnels, T2 is the longest tunnel in Balkans (6km)
https://goo.gl/maps/CC2Xzqc6hPyUs1AR7



1.2) Thessaloniki - Igoumenitsa
https://goo.gl/maps/dBucAx3zvzg1Nxns6
This will link Thessaloniki with Igoumenitsa port, one of the major cargo links between Italy (Ancona or Bari) and Greece.
This is also a very scenic route with multiple tunnels and bridges and mountain roads

2. Other links to major cities and ports

2.1 Ioannina - Kalamata
https://goo.gl/maps/CTLLbLic1Uh86m997
This is one major cargo route, linking North and West Greece with Patras (another big Port) and Peloponese, and also includes the famous Rio-Antirion bridge:
https://goo.gl/maps/gKGAJ8mkuBdHJHC66
This route ends in Kalamata, one of the most beautiful Greek cities with a port, and exporter of word class olive oil, oranges, lemons etc


2.2 Peireas - Patra
Another major link between Athens and Patra
https://goo.gl/maps/kfHvQPJUdPzf7zq46
This route includes the famous Corinth canal : https://goo.gl/maps/R2vpnfP2ZtsPN4Wz5

2.3 Crete (Chania - Irakleio)
Crete is the largest island in Greece, and this route links it's biggest cities
https://goo.gl/maps/mGd3ZdCkoGN3ztay8

3. Scenic routes

3.1 Corfu
Everybody will expect a long windy road seaside route. Islands are great, but for most of them you'll find it hard to get street view maps, as Google cars never found their way there, for example this route is great but unfortunately no maps : https://goo.gl/maps/B57YNtSV51Q38Uty9. A good option instead is..Corfu. This island is very popular with tourists, and actually this is the best truck route I could find

3.2 Chalkidiki
Another seaside route
https://goo.gl/maps/6i6g7ApkADQ1ABM18

3.3 Larisa - Kozani
viewtopic.php?t=267677
Now, this is a route through valleys, mountain roads, quarries, and also includes Servia bridge.
https://goo.gl/maps/3m6oe2TQfWgUvtEa9


4) Detours
Bonus points if you add a detour through the older highway section in Tempi valley, one of the most scenic and also dangerous routes in Greece
https://goo.gl/maps/FQWXabwZ8DfaNtnJ8
Some screenshots to convince you :D

Also the old part of Maliakos road, the other most dangerous road in the network, many trucks used to roll over there.

I think you absolutely should take a look at Meteora (Kalabaka) in northern Greece. It's a totally astounding place.
