Eyeing both sustainability and improved competitiveness in the maritime sector, Asyad Line acquired the state-of-the-art vessel. The vessel features a capacity of 2800 TEU and an excellent environmental efficiency rating, thanks to its low carbon footprint. The latest addition to the elite global carrier’s maritime arsenal puts into action Asyad Group’s bullish growth plans and proactive sustainability strategy, as it spearheads Oman’s drive to green logistics.

Additionally, Asyad Line has reinforced its IEX service by doubling its frequency, from two to four sailings per month, responding to the increasingly global and regional demand. IEX has proven to be a reliable and hugely popular direct route that connects Oman’s ports to India’s, calling on major GCC ports from Sohar Port to Dubai’s Jebel Ali, Qatar’s Hamad Port and Saudi Arabia’s King Abdul Aziz Port in Dammam, as well as Mundra, Nhava Sheva and Hazira ports in India.

Underlining the value of Asyad’s improved capabilities to global customers and trade, Imad Said Al Khadouri, CCO of Asyad Shipping and Drydock said: “The addition of a new vessel to Asyad Line’s growing fleet, as well as transforming IEX into a weekly service, reflects our dedication to meet all customers’ demands while simultaneously employing innovative technologies that limit the environmental impact of logistics operations. Our high-quality services, along with Asyad’s continuously expanding resources, create strong and long-lasting trade and shipping connections across the Asia-Pacific.”
