AD Ports Group’s SAFEEN Feeders has officially launched its UAE-Red Sea service with the inclusion of Fujairah Terminals and Jeddah, following successful trials with allocated cargo on the route.
The Red Sea service will provide direct connectivity between Abu Dhabi’s Khalifa Port and Port Sudan and will travel via AD Ports Group’s Fujairah Terminals, on the eastern seaboard of the UAE and Jeddah Port on the west coast of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, offering the fastest transit time between these vital trade hubs.
SAFEEN Feeders said that “customers of the service can access last-mile delivery to consignee locations across the UAE with the support of MICCO Logistics, part of AD Ports Group, which offers freight forwarding and end-to-end logistics solutions.”
Khalifa Port will serve as a main transit hub, while the addition of Fujairah Terminals will provide a much-needed stop on the UAE’s east coast, reducing the need for cargo to be transferred by road, according to SAFEEN Feeders announcement.
The company noted that the service will offer reduced transit times by using the direct route, which is up to four times faster than alternative transshipment services that can take as long as 30 days.
In addition to the UAE/Red Sea service, SAFEEN Feeders also offers services to UAE/China, Singapore/Chennai/Colombo, UAE Coastal/Oman, and UAE/India/Gulf services.
