Maersk Widens Cargo Operations At Jeddah Port


The logistics behemoth Maersk has added AE12 and AE7 shipping services to Jeddah Islamic Port, according to the Saudi Ports Authority (Mawani), as part of initiatives to link the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to international markets and open up new business prospects.

According to a statement from Mawani, the AE7 route, which has a capacity of 18,000 TEUs and 12 vessels, makes 15 port stops at Ningbo-Zhoushan, Shanghai, Nansha, Yantian, Tanjung Pelepas, Colombo, Tangier, Hamburg, Antwerp, Le Havre, Felixstowe, London Gateway, Salalah, Khalifa, and Jebel Ali.

On the other hand, it claimed that the AE12 service, which utilises a fleet of 12 ships with a 15,000-TEU capacity, connects Jeddah to 13 international centres in Southern Europe, Africa, and East Asia.
The most recent growth in the kingdom's international maritime network demonstrates Mawani's dedication to fostering effective partnerships with key partners like Maersk and Red Sea Gateway Terminal (RSGT), which aim to improve the country's standing in rankings like the UNCTAD's Liner Shipping Connectivity Index (LSCI).
According to the National Transport and Logistics Strategy (NTLS), it will also support Jeddah Islamic Port's ambition of being a premier international hub for trade and economic development.

The Danish shipping and logistics business Maersk, often known as Maersk, was established in 1904 by Peter M.r. Mller and Arnold Peter Mller. Shipping, port operations, supply chain management, and warehousing are all part of Maersk's business operations.
