Evergreen launches new Middle East service

Evergreen Marine Corp. said it will launch a new weekly joint service to the Middle East on Nov. 4 with Simatech Shipping.

The rotation is Port Kelang, Singapore, Nhava Sheva, Dubai, Jebel Ali, Bandar Abbas, Mundra, Nhava Sheva and back to Port Kelang.

The service will use four 1,100-TEU container ships - three from Simatech and one from Taiwan-based Evergreen - for a 28-day transit time schedule.

The service is Simatech's first trade route outside of the Middle East and Indian subcontinent. The company was founded in Dubai in 1992 by the Iranian ILS group.
