We are excited to share that we are expanding our presence in Iran with the addition of the port of Bushehr to our services. This means that our customers now benefit from Maersk Line’s global network, expertise and superior product, in addition to the port’s enhanced capabilities for reefer plugs and storage facility.
Advantages of calling Bushehr:
Bushehr is the largest and most important port for transportation of commercial goods within the Bushehr province in Iran. With a total throughput of 7 million tons, this port is capable of offering services for all containerized cargos, and most significantly refrigerated products. Some key benefits as below:
1. Availability of 400 reefer plugs at the port
2. Existence of cold-storage warehouses with a total capacity of 5,000 tons (below and above zero)
3. Quick and easy access to favourable markets due to the port’s proximity to urban areas
4. Short marine distance to the neighbouring ports; namely Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Bahrain.
Our Refrigerated Transport Expertise:
We have added 45,000 new reefer containers in the last one year to carry perishable goods to/from across the world. Our reefer fleet now totals 270,000 containers!
In addition, all our reefer containers are equipped with the latest innovation of Remote Container Management (RCM) technology that allows us to monitor reefer containers in real time – whether on land or at sea.
A Win-Win Situation:
With the port capabilities supporting our superior cargo care, your perishable goods are guaranteed to be fresh and in peak condition from origin to destination, when you ship your refrigerated goods with Maersk Line.
Your cargo connects on weekly mainline services from the rest of the world to the port of Jebel Ali, UAE. From Jebel Ali, the first sailing is scheduled on a direct and weekly feeder connection to Bushehr, Iran on Wednesday, 4 January 2017.
We now offer you two gateways to Iran – port of Bandar Abbas and Bushehr while the Maersk Line office is in Tehran.
We look forward to realizing new opportunities with you, this new year!
