Chinese COSCO eyes Aden Port
A Chinese trade delegation arrived in Aden to conclude joint accords with Yemen’s Transport Ministry and Aden Container Port’s Administration to use Aden Port as a transit point.
The Chinese delegation included chief executive officer of COSCO International Freight Company for east Asia and chairman of Feeder Service Company.
The delegation seeks to get facilities from the port’s administration to run the shipping line from the ports of China and East Asia to Aden Port, coordinator of the seaports and maritime transport at the Yemeni General Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry told Saba.
The COCOC’s shipping line operation from the ports of China and East Asia to Aden Port will enhance maritime traffic in the container port through using it as a transit point for containers of Hodeidah Port instead of using the Saudi port of Jeddah, the coordinator added.
Aden Port is considered a hub port and a transit point for goods transiting between East and West.
