Global NVOCC CargoGulf has announced a new container liner service between North Asia and the Arabian Gulf, the North Asia Gulf Express (NAGE) service, which complements its Arabian Gulf to Asia (AGA) service serving trade to/from Southeast Asia introduced last year.
NAGE service is scheduled to start from 16 May 2021 and will offer fixed weekly sailings between North Asia and the Arabian Gulf, linking the ports of Shanghai, Ningbo, Xiamen and Da Chan Bay (River Pearl Delta) directly with markets in the Arabian Gulf. It will also accept China import bookings from all Arabian Gulf ports, Colombo, Port Klang and Singapore.
Hans-Henrik Nielsen, CargoGulf’s Global Development Director, said: ”Continuing trade growth between the two regions fueled by Asia’s huge and increasing energy demands and the Middle East’s rising demand for consumer goods, presents opportunities for freight services.”
“The NAGE service will provide added value to our customers and allow us to manage our container equipment better. In today’s hectic liner world where equipment is king, we are going all out to serve the needs of our customers with the convenience of a one-stop-shop service.”
The dedicated service linking North Asia, the Arabian Gulf and Southeast Asia is the latest addition to CargoGulf’s growing portfolio, which also includes: AGA – Southeast Asia / Arabian Gulf; AGISC – Arabian Gulf / Indian Subcontinent; IAG – Inter-Arabian Gulf; Nil Manel Express – Arabian Gulf / Sri Lanka, Bengal and Maldives; and EUR – Europe-UK / Arabian Gulf.
