SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Three shipping firms Evergreen Line, Hanjin and Simatech will launch and operate a new service linking India, Middle East and Africa starting late March 2013, according to the companies late on Thursday.
The new service will cover Kenya and Tanzania.
“According to the partner carriers, these two nations have recorded steady increase of 6-7% in GDP over the past five years. In accordance with such economic growth, the trade from Asia, the Middle East … to East African regions has been experiencing significant upturn in recent years,” Hanjin said in a statement.
