OOCL Launches WM3 Services

Shipping line OOCL has launched a new West Mediterranean Service for Asia-Europe trade.

The WM3 services will extend the firm’s current Mediterranean service network to the Middle East and Indian Subcontinent by introducing a new Middle East/Pakistan/India – West Mediterranean Service (WM3), to be launched in March.

“WM3 more competitive and reliable services than transshipment options. It also provides the fastest transit time to the West Mediterranean, particularly to the Italian market,” a spokesperson for OOCL said.

Closer links with “strategic hubs” in Khor Al Fakkan and Jebel Ali are expected to provide further connectivity and flexibility for breakbulk cargoes and “more shipping options” for customers.
