Line, the global containerised division of the Maersk Group, announced the
successful execution of its first reefer as well as dry store door shipments
from customer’s door step via Haldia Dock Complex to its destinations in Los
Angeles, Alexandria, Newark and Savannah.
consignments were traditionally shipped from Kolkata port, however with the
opportunity of increased draft at port and its fixed weekly sailings, Haldia
offered a better prospect for the customer.
on this achievement, Steve Felder, managing director, Maersk Line (India, Sri
Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and Maldives) said, “We are committed to
delivering the best integrated logistical solutions tailor-made to suit our
customers in every geography. Our first Store Door (SD) Reefer project from
Haldia is a significant landmark and the first of many such initiatives to
follow. We will continue to work on our E2E service offerings and further
simplify trade in this region.”
