CargoGulf, a leading independent global Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC), is extending its services to connect the Middle East Gulf and Sri Lanka to the Pacific Islands.
The maiden service, which departed Dubai on October 19th and on October 23rd left Colombo, will maintain a fortnightly scheduled connecting with CargoGulf hubs in Busan, Singapore and Port Klang as well as the Micronesia, Melanesia and Polynesia regions and the northern Australian ports of Darwin and Dampier.
Hans-Henrik Nielsen, CargoGulf’s Global Development Director, says the addition of the Pacific trade further enhances the company’s services. He adds, ”We found this niche market appealing, as it requires technical skill and service level. It’s different to larger and price-driven markets, where container flow is regular in/out, and in the current extreme equipment crunch situation, most larger container operators do not pay as much attention to the small markets due to the lack of equipment. This enables our entry, as we have sufficient containers in our fleet.”
CargoGulf has earned a solid reputation across the Middle East and beyond. Business for this trade lane is served by CargoGulf’s own fleet of containers and slot charter agreements from the Arabian Gulf to connect with its main hubs in the Pacific.
