Kanoo Shipping, a member of the Kanoo Group and a major regional shipping agency, has opened a new port office in Hamriyah Free Zone adjacent to Hamriyah Port, a deepwater seaport and accompanying facilities located in Sharjah, UAE.
Hamriyah Port is part of a free trade zone for companies and a hub for the export and re-export of commodities to other world markets. Main deepwater port activities include petrochemical exports, container terminals and general cargo alongside berth depths of 14 meters.
Hamriyah Port can accommodate very large and deep drafted vessels and its main harbour is designed for handling LPG, oil products, general cargo, heavy-duty cargo, cement, grain and forest products. LPG loading terminal is currently operated by Petrofac, a leading international service provider to the energy industry. The inner harbour is located in the north part of the Hamriyah Free Zone. Offshore of Hamriyah, there is an SBM operated by BP, handling crude and condensate cargo.
Hamriyah Port is a few kilometres from Sharjah proper and industrial areas. Investors are able to save time and cost as the port is adjacent to Hamriyah Free Zone. It also has easy access to linking all seven emirates and provides connections to the adjacent Gulf States closer to the Straits of Hormuz.
With this new office of Kanoo Shipping, it said that their Husbandry, Crew Care, Port and Cargo Operations services to clients are more robust than ever as port authorities, Customs, Immigration and other government agencies are also located in the same vicinity. – TradeArabia News Service
