APM Terminals Pipavav facilitates customers via new weekly service to the Gulf markets
APM Terminals Pipavav welcomed the first call of “Shaheen Express” at the port in early December. The weekly service, operated by Maersk will rotate among the ports of Jebel Ali – Dammam – Jebel Ali – Mundra – Pipavav – Jebel Ali. The service will provide the transit time of 2 days to Jabel Ali and 4 days to Dammam - one of the fastest transit times to the Gulf markets .
The trade between two regions have gone up after the India-UAE Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) entered in May 2022. Electronic items, perishable foodstuff, textile, apparel and chemicals are commodities which will primarily benefit from the new service connecting western countries through Global Feeders.
“APM Terminals Pipavav is happy to partner with Maersk and Global Feeders to offer reliable weekly service which addresses increasing demand for trade between the Indian and Gulf markets. APM Terminals Pipavav and Pipavav Rail Corporation Ltd (PRCL) will leverage this new service to cater to the various ICDs in north-west hinterlands through Dedicated Freight Corridor.” said Mr. Jakob Friis Sørensen, MD, APM Terminals Pipavav.
