The India to East Med shipping route by MSC has included Jubail Commercial Port, according to the Saudi Ports Authority (MAWANI).

With the arrival of container vessel MSC ELLEN, the Saudi ports sector is set to welcome yet another trade link.

Given its strategic location at the crossroads of three major continents alongside being home to a world class logistics infrastructure, leading shipping lines have progressively leaned towards Saudi Arabia as a vital port of call.  

The new service will link the Kingdom to Turkey, the Indian Subcontinent, Africa, and the Middle East.

This will be done through weekly sailings to the ports of Khalifa, Jebel Ali, Hamad, Karachi, Mundra, Hazira, Alexandria, Tekirdag, Aliaga, Mersin, and King Abdullah on board five vessels with an average carrying capacity of 8,000 TEU.
