Another New Service at Sharjah Container Terminal
Exporters and importers to and from Mumbai (JNPT), Karachi and Mundra as well as Muscat, now have more reasons to celebrate with the start of a new weekly container service calling at Gulftainer’s Sharjah Container Terminal (SCT).
Highlighting the call of the 1000 teu/ 13,500 DWT ‘Harmony” operated by Orient Shipping on the 29th March, Terminal Manager Paul Hennessy made a presentation to Captain Arthur L. Roco of the ship with Orient Shipping General manager Howard James in attendance.
Mr. Hennessy commented, “We are delighted that this new service will allow exporters & importers the opportunity to service Mumbai/ Karachi & Mundra using the SCT gateway for the UAE.
As everyone knows, our Terminal in Sharjah, in addition to our other option via Khorfakkan, allows faster and cheaper distribution in & out of the UAE market – and Orient’s decision to call SCT is yet more evidence of the pressure from traders to have better alternatives available for them to use, to cope with a road infrastructure under severe pressure.
We will certainly ensure that Orient and their customers get the fast, efficient service for which SCT is famous.”
