"Al Maha", Maersk’s new ocean shipping service
"Al Maha", Maersk's new ocean shipping service, will commence its rotation between major ports in UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, Egypt and Morocco, next month. Seven vessels with a nominal capacity of 8,500 teus per week will be put into operation.
As well as serving customers on those trade routes, the "Al Maha" service will offer further connections to European, Middle Eastern and Far Eastern markets: Port Tangier – Port Said – Jeddah – Salalah – Jebel Ali – Doha – Dammam – Jubail – Jebel Ali – Duqm – Salalah – Jeddah – Port Said – Port Tangiers.
Customers from Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province and the UAE – West Africa market are expected to benefit from this service. Reliable schedules and a higher loading flexibility will enable them to improve the planning of their supply chains, Maersk says. (lh)
