Milaha will start a direct container shipping service connecting the Black Sea and the Mediterranean in its first foray into Europe.
The Black Sea Express Service (BSX) feeder service will link Greece, Turkey, Georgia and Russia.
The BSX rotation is Piraeus (Greece), Kumport (Istanbul), Poti (Georgia), Novorossiysk (Russia), Piraeus (Greece), and will initially be served by two ships with 1,700 containers and 300 refrigerated containers, the company said.
The new service will cater for Russian and Turkish regional trade, while also linking Greece with multiple locations in the Black Sea region, further enhancing Milaha’s portfolio of international maritime and logistics services.
Milaha’s President and CEO Abdulrahman Essa Al-Mannai highlighted that the introduction of the Black Sea Express Service reflects the company’s success in expanding its coverage into new markets, amid a rising demand for its services.
"This latest addition to our feeder services will complement our existing coverage in the Black Sea region and expand our reach to the Mediterranean Sea. This offers more flexibility to our customers through greater port coverage, increased reliability and reduced transit times, "he said.
Milaha currently calls 12 ports directly and serves more than 20 ports via its Liner services in Middle East, Indian Sub-continent, South East Asia and Europe.
