AD Ports Group’s SAFEEN Feeders will collaborate with CMA CGM Group in launching a new Southeast Asia service linking Singapore, Colombo and Chennai.
The company’s ‘SAFEEN Pioneer,’ which has a container capacity of 2,034 TEU, will join CMA CGM Group’s ‘Songa Tiger’ on the India East Coast Express 2 service, connecting the ports.
SAFEEN Feeders will market the service under the name Singapore Chennai Colombo Service (SCC).
This will be SAFEEN Feeders’ first service to call in Southeast Asia.
Captain Ammar Mubarak Al Shaiba, Acting CEO – Maritime Cluster and SAFEEN Group, AD Ports Group, said: “We are very proud to be working with our partner, CMA CGM Group, on the India East Coast Express service.
“This service connects key global markets with some of the busiest ports in the world and will help boost trade and improve delivery times.”
SAFEEN Group delivers a range of port and marine services, transshipment, offshore and subsea logistics and feeders services.
Earlier this year SAFEEN Feeders signed a long-term trade facilitation and shipping agreement with Saif Powertec Limited.
In December last year SAFEEN Feeders announced acquisition of a boxship SAFEEN Pearl to join its feeder service fleet in the Arabian Gulf.
