SAFEEN Feeders has officially launched its UAE-Red Sea service with the inclusion of Fujairah Terminals and Jeddah.
The Red Sea service will provide direct connectivity between Abu Dhabi’s Khalifa Port and Port Sudan, home to Sudan’s main seaport.
It will travel via AD Ports Group’s Fujairah Terminals, on the eastern seaboard of the UAE and Jeddah Port on the west coast of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, offering the fastest transit time between these vital trade hubs.
Customers of the service can access last-mile delivery to consignee locations across the UAE with the support of MICCO Logistics – part of AD Ports Group, which also owns SAFEEN Feeders – which offers freight forwarding and end-to-end logistics solutions.
Khalifa Port will serve as a main transit hub, while the addition of Fujairah Terminals will provide a much-needed stop on the UAE’s east coast, reducing the need for cargo to be transferred by road.
Importers and exporters will save transit time by using the direct route, which is up to four times faster than alternative transshipment services that can take 30 days.
Captain Ammar Mubarak Al Shaiba, Acting CEO – Maritime Cluster and SAFEEN Group, AD Ports Group, said: “The Red Sea service reflects the wise vision of the leaders of the UAE, which looks to strengthen the bond between brotherly nations through trade and development.
“By connecting Abu Dhabi’s Khalifa Port and Port Sudan, along with Fujairah and Jeddah, we are linking four key regional trade hubs and cutting transit time significantly for businesses along the route.”
SAFEEN Feeders also offers services to UAE/China, Singapore/Chennai/Colombo, UAE Coastal/Oman, and UAE/India/Gulf services.
SAFEEN Group delivers a range of port and marine services, transshipment, offshore and subsea logistics and feeders services.
