DUBAI : DP World welcomed a new weekly Straits India Service (SIS) at its port terminals in Nhava Sheva and Mundra. The new service is operated by the feeder operator Feedertech part of Unifeeder Group (DP World Marine Services).
The new weekly service will establish direct connectivity to the Far East with the shortest transit time from DP World terminals in Nhava Sheva and Mundra. This will further boost trade between India and the Far East by providing customers with opportunities to grow their business and offer seamless connections to Malaysia and Singapore as an alternative to transhipping at Colombo Port thereby, improving lead time and reducing cost.
The service commenced with the maiden call of vessel “ORNELLA” on 4th December 2021 at DP World Nhava Sheva Terminal and on 6th December 2021 at DP World Mundra Terminal. The Weekly SIS will have the shortest transit time of 8 days from Mundra to Singapore, providing great cost benefits to customers.
The service port rotation is Singapore – Port Kelang – Nhava Sheva – Mundra – Singapore.
Ravinder Singh Johal, Regional Head – Commercial Liner Sales (ports), subcontinent, DP World, said “We welcome the new service at our terminals in Nhava Sheva and Mundra. It is our constant endeavour to enhance direct connections from our terminals and provide regional connectivity to our customers.

We will continue to create opportunities in the fast-growing coastal short-sea trade on the Indian Subcontinent.”
