Maersk Line Expands Foothold in Iran

Maersk Line Expands Foothold in Iran

Danish container shipping company Maersk Line has added Iranian Port of Bushehr to its services, expanding its presence in this Middle-Eastern country. 

From Jebel Ali in the United Arab Emirates, the first sailing on a direct and weekly feeder connection to Bushehr commenced on January 4, 2017.

The firm has deployed Inter Sydney, a 3,400 TEU containership, in the service.

With a total throughput of 7 million tons, the Port of Bushehr has short marine distance to the ports of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Bahrain.

Maersk Line said its services now encompass two Iranian ports – the Port of Bandar Abbas and the Port of Bushehr, while the company’s office is located in Tehran.
