Japanese shipping company ‘K' Line, the tenth largest container shipping company in the world, called to Aqaba Container Terminal (ACT) last month with its mainline Durban Bridge vessel.

To mark its first call to the Red Sea, ACT presented a special plaque to the vessel's captain Lu Lan Ziang, in the presence of the local line agent.

"To have a leading Japanese shipping line calling at ACT has further enhanced our leading position and highlights the terminal's growing popularity in the region for many global shipping companies," said Jerry Rickcord, chief executive officer of ACT.
