UAE’s port of Sharjah as direct call unveiled

Regional shipping line Safmarine has enhanced its Masiika Express service between the Arabian Persian Gulf and East Africa with the addition of a direct call at the UAE port of Sharjah.  The call provides direct access to the East African ports of Dar es Salaam and Mombasa.

According to Safmarine’s Liner Executive, Jan Scheck, “Sharjah is currently served via a feeder to Jebel Ali and a direct call will allow Safmarine to further improve on the service we’re currently offering our growing customer base in the Gulf and Africa. The first call at Sharjah will be made on June 9, 2010 by the vessel, ER Elsfleth.”

Capacity will not be increased and the service – which is a joint Safmarine-Maersk Line service - will continue to deploy its current fleet of 2500 teu vessels.  The revised port rotation will be as follows: Sharjah - Jebel Ali - Salalah - Dar Es Salaam - Mombasa - Salalah – Sharjah.
