AP Moller – Maersk has launched Al Maha, a maritime shipping service that will begin operations between major ports in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, Egypt and Morocco from June 2023. The service will enable exporters and importers in the region to benefit from multiple commodities, with sufficient capacity to meet demand and improved scheduling for better planning of their supply chains. The company will discontinue the ME3 and ME4 services, and the Al Maha service will provide more connections to European, Middle Eastern and Far Eastern markets.

With a nominal capacity of 8,500 twenty-foot equivalent units per week, the Al Maha service will consist of seven vessels following the rotation of ports from Port Tangier to Port Said, Jeddah, Salalah, Jebel Ali, Doha, Dammam, Jubail, Jebel Ali, Duqm, Salalah, Jeddah, and return to Port Said and Port Tangier. The new service aims to assist in the economic growth and development of their customers and the economy they operate in, from fisheries to petrochemical exporting. By offering loading flexibility from the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, customers can transfer between Dammam and Jubail providing a favorable situation for petrochemical exporters in the region. Al Maha will better serve customers in the region with greater schedule reliability and predictability, enabling them to incorporate better planning for their supply chains.
