DP World Chen­nai hosted the launch of Si­mat­ech Ship­ping L.L.C’s Chen­nai Colombo Gulf Ser­vice (CCG Ser­vice) which will link South and East In­dia to Ara­bian Gulf and East Africa trans­ship­ping, at Jebel Ali re­cently. The ser­vice with MV Sima Per­fect made its maiden call. Si­mat­ech owns and op­er­ates three ves­sels namely Sima Per­fect, Sima Pres­tige and Sima Sap­phire which of­fers a fixed weekly sail­ing from Chen­nai. The weekly ser­vice will be call­ing on Chen­nai ev­ery Fri­day and sail­ing out on Satur­day. Sima Per­fect car­ried no im­port con­tain­ers for dis­charge at Chen­nai since it was com­menc­ing the ser­vice afresh from Chen­nai, whereas the ship car­ried ex­port boxes to Colombo and Jebel Ali. The ma­jor com­modi­ties car­ried by this ser­vice com­prises of gar­ments, gran­ite, food­stuffs, seafood & gen­eral cargo. The new ser­vice will have a di­rect, ded­i­cated and fast cov­er­age from Chen­nai to Ara­bian Gulf. The CCG ser­vice will de­ploy 3x1200 TEU ca­pac­ity ves­sels and op­er­ate with the fol­low­ing port ro­ta­tion: Chen­nai - Colombo - Cochin - Jebel Ali - Cochin - Colombo - Chen­nai. This ser­vice also of­fers an ef­fi­cient and fast feeder link via Jebel Ali into the en­tire Ara­bian Gulf re­gion and China, Bangladesh & Pak­istan via Colombo.
