Greek shipping company Neptune Lines has officially launched a new RoRo service in the Middle East.

The inauguration of the new service took place in Dubai on September 27, 2016.

The service will connect the UAE ports of Jebel Ali and Khalifa to the ports of Shuwaikh (Kuwait) and Umm Qasr (Iraq), as well as Bandar Abbas (Iran), Sohar (Oman), Dammam (Saudi Arabia), Hamad (Qatar) and Khalifa Bin Salman (Bahrain).

Supported by NMT Shipping, the new service will also operate alternative routes on an inducement basis upon demand and subject to availability.

“We are creating a sea bridge dedicated to the automotive trade, servicing the Emirati ports as well as the ports of Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq and Iran, aiming to boost and facilitate the trading of vehicles overall, offering permanent solutions for reliable, on-time deliveries,” Melina Travlos, Neptune’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said.

Established in 1975, Neptune Lines operates in over 30 ports in 20 countries in the Mediterranean and the Black Seas and as of July 2016 in the Middle East.
