MPL readies to commence container-ferry services

Maldives Ports Limited (MPL) prepares to commence their ferry services to local atolls.

Moreover, the state-owned enterprise’s Managing Director Shahid Ali comments the ferry service will connect Male’ Commercial Harbor with local atolls.

Through the container ferry service, local atolls will receive container shipments directly at their respective ports.

Meanwhile, MPL reports official commencement of their container ferry services in coming June.

On the other hand, the company recently made acquisition of a landing-craft for the said purpose.

During the initial phase, MPL will be delivering containers only to Addu City and Kulhudhuffushi City ports.

However, the company affirms expansion following sufficient operating cycles.
