MSC has started the year with an extension to its services, providing a direct call at Hamad Port.
The addition to the company’s New Falcon service, will see container volumes able to travel west from the Far East and South East Asia, to Qatar.
Customers will also benefit from a competitive transit time and better service coverage over all the major Ports and Inlands from Far East/South East Asia.
The first vessel to sail on the new service, MSC ELMA FK701A, left Shanghai on 5th January, and is expected to arrive in Hamad on 26th January.
The new facility will also serve volumes out of South and East India, via Colombo. It will help to meet the growing demand of Qatar’s export market, by offering direct connections via Mundra Port to worldwide destinations.
