Qatar-based maritime transport and logistics company Milaha has launched the new Black Sea Express Service (BSX) — the company’s first European service linking the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. 

The new direct feeder service will be connecting Greece, Turkey, Georgia and Russia and will initially be served by two vessels with a 1,700 TEU capacity and 300 reefer plugs.

It will have the following port rotation: Piraeus (Greece) – Kumport (Istanbul) – Poti (Georgia) – Novorossiysk (Russia) – Piraeus (Greece).

According to Milaha, the new service will cater for Russian and Turkish regional trade, while also linking Greece with multiple locations in the Black Sea region, further enhancing the company’s portfolio of international maritime and logistics services.

Milaha’s President and CEO Abdulrahman Essa Al-Mannai highlighted that the introduction of the new service reflects the company’s success in expanding its coverage into new markets, amid rising demand for its services.

“This latest addition to our feeder services will complement our existing coverage in the Black Sea region and expand our reach to the Mediterranean Sea,” he said.

Milaha currently calls twelve ports directly and serves more than 20 ports via its liner services in the Middle East, Indian Sub-continent, South East Asia and Europe.

The company’s fleet currently comprises 66 vessels with a total fleet value of USD 792.07 million, VesselsValue’s data shows.
