Maersk Line Service to UMM Qasr, Iraq

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

As new opportunities for foreign trade arise, importers and exporters in Iraq are calling for more reliable cargo transport services to neighboring countries - with the regular, on-time port calls and professional terminal services international traders require to grow their business.

Now, Maersk Line offers a new dedicated feeder service between Jebel Ali (UAE) and Umm Qasr (South Port terminal), linking Iraq to trading partners in the region and beyond.

The new service offers major improvements over existing services. A Maersk-owned US Flag vessel will be deployed on the rotation, offering all the operational reliability you expect from Maersk Line. And our own dedicated, scheduled berthing facility will ensure on-time port calls and reduce the risk of delays.

The service also includes Kuwaiti-operated terminal services dedicated to Maersk Line. This will enable us to consolidate all our operations to a single container yard and provide highly professional terminal services.

Operations commence in the beginning of November with the first call at Umm Qasr scheduled for 14 November, and new services including reefer acceptance, inland haulage and our own sales representation planned for the near future.
