The first ship carrying cargo from the United Arab Emirates to Israel entered Haifa port this week on the container vessel MSC Paris, carrying consignments of iron as well as firefighting, cleaning and electronic equipment. It is expected that container movements between the UAE and Israel will continue on a weekly basis, following the normalisation of trade ties between the two countries. Exports from Israel to the Emirates are also expected to commence shortly.
MSC Paris operates within a service that connects India and the Mediterranean. The rotation is now to be amended to include a regular call into Jebel Ali port westbound.
