Effective mid June, ships deployed on the Korea – Middle East ‘FMX’ service will make additional calls at Port Kelang and Abu Dhabi (Mina Khalifa). The service is jointly operated by Hanjin (four vessels), CSAV (two vessels) and UASC (one vessels) on a fixed day, seven-week round trip.
The new rotation is to be inaugurated by the 6,655 teu HANJIN BUDAPEST, sailing from Kwangyang on 4 June, and reads as follows:
Kwangyang, Busan, Shanghai, Ningbo, Xiamen, Shekou (Shenzhen), Singapore, Port Kelang (first call on 18 June), Jebel Ali, Abu Dhabi (first call on 29 June), Khor Fakkan, Singapore, Kwangyang.
The service used to call Iran, but the Bandar Abbas call was recently removed, as a result of UN sanctions against Iran.
