MSC, YANG MING LAUNCH SERVICE FROM HAMMAD PORT, QATAR

Two new maritime lines are being launched from Hamad Port on September 17 which will enhance Qatar’s trade connections with various ports in China, India, Malaysia, Turkey and Greece, among other countries.


Qatar Ports Management Company (Mwani Qatar) announced yesterday that two shipping companies, Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) and Yang Ming, would open the new lines from September 17, 2017.

MSC will launch a new line in Mediterranean Sea with four  ships, each with a capacity of 6,000 containers including 400 reefer containers. This new service will be weekly and run through ports of Mersin, Istanbul, Tekridag, Canakkale and Iskenderun in Turkey, Piraeus in Greece, Mundara in India, Sohar and Salalah in Oman and Hamad Port in Qatar. Mwani Qatar has also announced on its social media pages that another shipping company Yang Ming will start a weekly service with one ship of 6,000 containers including 400 reefer containers capacity.  It will connect Shanghai, Ningbo, Xiamen and Shekou in China, Kaohsiung in Taiwan, Port Klang in Malaysia and Hamad Port in Qatar.

MSC is the world’s second-largest shipping line in terms of container vessel capacity. As of the end of December 2014, MSC was operating 471 container vessels with an intake capacity of 2,435,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU). The Geneva-headquartered company operates in all major ports of the world. MSC had inaugurated its maiden voyage between Hamad Port and Salalah Port in June this year and MSC KERRY was the first vessel that called the Hamad Port.



Yang Ming Marine Transport Corporation is an ocean shipping company based in Keelung, Taiwan (ROC). Yang Ming currently operates 84 container ships up to 8,250 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) and 17 bulk carriers.

Yang Ming’s service scope covers over 70 nations with more than 170 service points. Mwani Qatar in cooperation with its partners has launched a number of new direct shipping lines between Hamad Port and various ports of the region and beyond in the last three months. The new routes, launched after imposition of blockade by three Gulf countries, have connected Hamad Port to Sohar and Salalah ports in Oman, Shuwaikh Port in Kuwait, Karachi Port in Pakistan, Izmir Port in Turkey, Mundra and Nava Shiva Ports in India.  Within a week of three Gulf countries imposing a blockade on Qatar, Mwani Qatar launched a new direct service between Hamad Port and Sohar Port in Oman under Milaha’s DMJ service — three times a week. On June 23, another new line linking Hamad Port directly to Salalah Port was launched.

Mwani Qatar had announced launching a new maritime line between Qatar and India named “India Qatar Express Service” (IQX) on June 14. Last month, Kuwait Qatar Express Service started between Hamad Port and Shuwaikh Port in Kuwait using a 515 TEU vessel.

On August 27, Milaha announced the launch of a direct service between Pakistan and Qatar. The new service, called PQX (Pakistan Qatar Express Service), is operating weekly between the Port of Karachi, Pakistan and Hamad Port, Qatar with a competitive transit time of 4 days, making it the fastest direct connection between the two countries.

QATAR RECOVERING FROM SLUGGISH GULF SANCTIONS

Sluggish July imports in Qatar show sanctions still hurting economy

DUBAI (Reuters) - Qatar's imports recovered only slightly in July after plunging in June, government data released on Thursday showed, suggesting the country's economy is still suffering from sanctions imposed by other Gulf states. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain cut diplomatic and transport ties with Qatar on June 5, accusing Doha of supporting terrorism, which it denies.

The closure of the Saudi border with Qatar and disruption to shipping routes via the UAE slashed Qatar's imports by 37.9 percent in June compared with May, forcing Doha to scramble to arrange new shipping routes and import some goods by air. Thursday's figures showed Qatar is still far from restoring its imports to normal. Imports recovered by only 6.3 percent month-on-month to 6.24 billion riyals ($1.71 billion) in July; they were 35.0 percent below their level in July 2016.

Much of the disruption appears to be to big-ticket items. Imports of aircraft parts were down 40.5 percent from a year ago at 292 million riyals in July. The diplomatic crisis has deprived Qatar Airways of two of its biggest markets, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.



Incoming shipments of equipment and building materials for Qatar's big infrastructure projects may also have slowed in some cases. Imports of gas turbines dropped 19.8 percent from a year ago to 328 million riyals. Many dairy products and other perishable foods used to be imported across the Saudi border. Although there are no reports of food shortages in Qatar, disruption to imports appears to be pushing up food and drink prices, which rose 4.2 percent in July from June, data released last week showed.

Thursday's trade figures suggested the sanctions are not affecting Qatar's natural gas exports - July exports of petroleum gases and other gaseous hydrocarbons rose 7.8 percent from a year ago - and are no longer slowing other exports much. As a result, Qatar's trade surplus expanded 78.1 percent from a year earlier to 11.91 billion riyals in July, although it edged down 4.8 percent from the previous month.



Analysts think the sanctions damage should ease in coming months as new shipping routes develop. Qatar Navigation launched a direct Qatar-Turkey service this week after starting a container service to Kuwait last week; construction of a food processing and storage facility at Qatar's Hamad Port received $440 million of bank financing this week.

A Reuters poll of analysts published last month found them still expecting the Qatari economy to be one of the region's strongest performers in 2017 and 2018.
