Admiral Feeders launching Jebel Ali - Basra service

UAE-based Admiral Feeders is launching a new service connecting Jebel Ali with Al Maqal Port in Basra.

The weekly service will launch at the end of April with a 500 teu vessel. It will connect NAWAH Port Management run Port of Basra facility, also known as Al Maqal Port, located in the heart of Basra, with the major transhipment hub of Jebel Ali.

“The service will allow the shipping lines using Jebel Ali as transhipment hub to offer a cost effective and competitive frequency to Basra and will offer additional supply chain opportunities to Iraq, which is one of the emerging markets in the region”.

Calling at Al Maqal Port avoids over 50 km of haulage from the deepwater port of Umm Qasr, which can handle vessels of up to 4,000 teu.

Admiral Feeders serves Umm Qasr – Jebel Ali through a slot agreement.
