Maersk Line Expands Foothold in Iran

Danish container shipping company Maersk Line has added Iranian Port of Bushehr to its services, expanding its presence in this Middle-Eastern country. 

From Jebel Ali in the United Arab Emirates, the first sailing on a direct and weekly feeder connection to Bushehr commenced on January 4, 2017.

The firm has deployed Inter Sydney, a 3,400 TEU containership, in the service.

With a total throughput of 7 million tons, the Port of Bushehr has short marine distance to the ports of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Bahrain.

Maersk Line said its services now encompass two Iranian ports – the Port of Bandar Abbas and the Port of Bushehr, while the company’s office is located in Tehran.
