Maritime Gateway - - News -

Ma­jor ports have recorded a growth of 4.58 per cent and to­gether han­dled

560.97 mil­lion tonnes of cargo dur­ing the pe­riod April 2017 to Jan­uary 2018, as against 536.41 mil­lion tonnes han­dled dur­ing the cor­re­spond­ing pe­riod of the pre­vi­ous year. For the pe­riod from April 2017 to Jan­uary 2018, eight ports, i.e. Kolkata, in­clud­ing Hal­dia, Paradip, Visakha­p­at­nam, Chen­nai, Cochin, New Man­ga­lore, JNPT and Deen­dayal have regis­tered pos­i­tive growth in traf­fic. OOCL is ex­tend­ing its Mediter­ranean ser­vice net­work to the Mid­dle East and In­dian Sub­con­ti­nent by in­tro­duc­ing its new Mid­dle East/pak­istan/in­dia - West Mediter­ranean Ser­vice (WM3) that pro­vides di­rect link­age be­tween the Mid­dle East, Pak­istan, In­dia, Italy, Spain, France and Egypt, of­fer­ing more com­pet­i­tive and re­li­able ser­vices than tran­ship­ment op­tions. It also pro­vides the fastest tran­sit time to the West Mediter­ranean, par­tic­u­larly to the Ital­ian mar­ket. In ad­di­tion, the strate­gic hubs in Khor Al Fakkan and Jebel Ali will al­low it to fur­ther con­nect its ser­vices to var­i­ous OOCL net­works in the re­gion, thus of­fer­ing ex­cep­tional flex­i­bil­ity and more ship­ping op­tions to customers. WM3 port ro­ta­tion: Khor Al Fakkan Jebel Ali - Karachi - Mun­dra - Nhava Sheva - Jed­dah - Suez - Malta - La Spezia - Gen­ova - Barcelona Va­len­cia - Tang­ier - Fos Gen­ova - Malta - Dami­etta - Suez - Jed­dah - Khor Al Fakkan.
