Iranian national shipping company HDASCO Line plans to launch a new container shipping service between Haropa – Port of Le Havre and Iranian and Iraqi ports, starting from February 2017.
The new service will call at the following ports: Bandar Abbas, Asaluyeh, Bandar Iman, Khomeini, Busher, Khorramshahr (Iran) and the port of Um Qasr (Iraq).
The service will also call at ports including Malta (Malta), Khor Fakkam, Jebel Ali (UAE), Xingang (China), Busan (South Korea), Qingdao, Shanghai, Ningbo, Yantian (China), Port Kelang (Malaysia).
“HDASCO Line is a well-known shipping line at the port of Le Havre. Before the embargo, the Iranian containerships called at Le Havre every week between 2006 and 2009, connecting the main Iranian ports,” Hervé Cornede, Haropa Commercial and Marketing Director, said.
Le Havre calls within the new service will be every Tuesday at the Terminal de France (TDF) and will be handled by the Générale de Manutention Portuaire (GMP), Haropa said.
HDASCO Line (Hafez Darya Arya Shipping Company), also known as HDS Lines, is a subsidiary of IRISL Group (Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines).
