ESL unveils enhanced GALEX service and launches two new services

Effective from 14 February, ESL’s flagship GALEX service will provide direct connections between key Chinese ports and the newest addition, the Saudi Arabian maritime hub of Dammam.

The upgraded port rotation is expected to reduce transit time between key ports in China and Jebel Ali, as well as ensure continued coverage into Sohar, Oman and Khor Fakkan, UAE.

Additionally, the Gulf Pakistan Shuttle (GPS), an upgrade from the liner’s earlier JBS service, provides direct access between Pakistan, Shuwaikh and Dammam, as well as to the transshipment hub in Jebel Ali, with further connections to the ESL network in Asia, the Red Sea and East Africa. The service’s first voyage will begin on 6 February.

Finally, the Jebel Ali Bahrain Express (JBX) service, which commences on 15 February, is an exclusive weekly shuttle between Jebel Ali and Bahrain.

"Bahraini customers can utilise Jebel Ali as a transshipment hub, and tap into wider markets in Asia, the Red Sea, the Indian Subcontinent and Africa," said Emirates Shipping Line in a statement.

All three services pass through Jebel Ali, bringing the total number of ESL services passing through the port to eight.

GALEX service rotation:

Busan - South Korea, Qingdao - China, Shanghai - China, Xiamen - China, Da Chan Bay - China, Port Klang - Malaysia, Jebel Ali - United Arab Emirates, Dammam - Saudi Arabia, Khor Fakkan - United Arab Emirates, Sohar - Oman, Port Klang - Malaysia, Busan - South Korea

GPS service rotation:

Jebel Ali, United Arab Emirates > Karachi, Pakistan > Sohar, Oman > Jebel Ali, United Arab Emirates > Kuwait, Dammam, Saudi Arabia > Jebel Ali, United Arab Emirates

JBX service rotation:

Jebel Ali, UAE - Bahrain - Jebel Ali, UAE.
