NEW SHIPPING SERVICE TO ABU DHABI

APL, the world"s seventh-largest shipping line, has included Abu Dhabi on its express service linking South Asia, the Gulf and the Red Sea in a sign of the emirate"s growing status as a shipping hub.

"Growing demand for imported construction materials, agricultural products including alfalfa, and household appliances were driving factors in expanding its service into Abu Dhabi, the company said."

The shipper will now call at the emirate"s Mina Zayed Port as well as Bahrain as part of its line-haul service, which uses large vessels capable of carrying 4,000 containers at a time to serve Pakistan, India, the Gulf and the Red Sea.

By contrast, most shipping lines serve Mina Zayed by way of Jebel Ali Port, where the shipments are placed on smaller feeder vessels and transported up the Gulf.

?Cargo demands in Abu Dhabi and Bahrain allowed us to reconfigure the line haul,? said Gene Seroka, the regional vice president of APL, a subsidiary of Singapore-based NOL Group. APL holds 3.6 per cent of the worldwide container shipping market, with a capacity of 487,000 20-foot standard containers (TEUs), according to Alphaliner.

APL reported a 28 per cent increase in shipments into Mina Zayed last year, compared to 19 per cent growth overall for the port, indicating it increased its market share over the period.
