New service connects Saudi Arabia to Indian subcontinent


The Saudi Ports Authority (MAWANI) has announced the addition of King Abdulaziz Port to the IMX service.

The IMX service is operated by a maritime consortium that includes Qatar-based shipping and logistics conglomerate Milaha, vessel operator X-Press Feeders, and short-sea carrier Unifeeder.

The IMX route will also call at the ports of Jebel Ali, Khalifa, Nhava Sheva, Hazira, Mundra, and Hamad onboard three vessels holding a capacity of 3,500 TEU each.

A total of five shipping services were added to the trade hubs of Jeddah, Jubail, and Dammam over the span of January this year, thereby opening new trade avenues between Saudi Arabia and 43 global ports.
