Maersk Line Makes a Comeback to Iran

Danish shipping giant Maersk Line has restored its services to and from Iran, after a five-year absence from this Middle East country. 

The company said it offers nine mainline services with weekly departures on all major trade lanes to/from Jebel Ali, with a direct feeder to Bandar Abbas.

For imports from Iran, there are three weekly services connecting the Middle East and Europe which include ME1, ME2 and ME3, the Horn of Africa service linking the Middle East and the Horn of Africa and the Masika Express service between the Middle East and East Africa. In addition, the company offers the Mesawa service connecting the Middle East and West Africa/South Africa as well as the Horn of Africa service that links the Middle East and the Far East.

For exports to Iran, Maersk Line offers three additional services, AE1, AE11 and AE15, that link the Middle East and the Far East.

The latest country included in the Maersk Line organization is part of the UAE cluster comprising of UAE, Oman, Qatar and Iran.

“After a period of relative isolation, access to this new market will present significant growth opportunities for Maersk Line in a market that today represents approximately 700,000 FFE but is expected to grow significantly in the coming years.” Marcus Connolly, Head of Sales, UAE Cluster, Maersk Line, said.
