Hanjin's FMS service calls at Khorfakkan

Hanjin's FMS service calls at Khorfakkan

Sharjah: The first vessel in Hanjin's FMS service called at Gulftainer's Khorfakkan Container Terminal at Port Khalid last Tuesday, kicking off a new service between East Asia and the UAE. The 2,500teu Hanjin Qingdao berthed at the port as part of a scheduled call on a loadport rotation covering China, Korea and South East Asia. The service, operated in conjunction with STX Panocean, Sinokor and C&Line, will boast an additional three ships early in 2008.
Gulftainer director and gm Peter Richards commented "We are delighted that our long-time customer Hanjin/Senator has chosen to boost its presence in the area with a further call at Khorfakkan. They recognise, at a time when costs for lines are increasing dramatically - with fuel prices at an all time high - the benefits of calling at the region's most productive and cost effective major container terminal hub in Khorfakkan, from where they can serve the UAE markets quickly and simply via the Sharjah ICD, and also the surrounding regions of the Gulf, Iran, Pakistan, India and East Africa by interconnected relay services."  [19/11/07]
