OOCL Adds Khalifa Call to China-Mideast Service

Abu Dhabi Terminals has signed a contract with Hong Kong-based container carrier OOCL to include a call at the Port of Khalifa on its China-Middle East Express (CMX) Service, a weekly intra-Asia loop.

The first OOCL vessel calling Khalifa Port Container Terminal is currently scheduled to arrive on June 11.

The CMX port rotation is Ningbo, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Chiwan, Singapore, Jebel Ali, Abu Dhabi, Sohar, Singapore, Nansha, Xiamen and back to Ningbo.

“We are proud to welcome OOCL to Khalifa port. Their CMX service will bring additional diversity to the service offerings of our facility, which directly benefits the trade as a whole,” terminal operator ADT said.

Khalifa, which is designed to take over all container-handling operations from Mina Zayed port, began commercial operations in September last year.
