IRISL recommences service to France

Jan 24, 2017: The Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines will launch a new service that will connect Iran to the French port of Le Havre.

Before nuclear sanctions, Iranian containerships called at Le Havre every week between 2006 and 2009, connecting the main Iranian ports.

Beginning February, the service will be operated by HDASCO Line (Hafez Darya Arya Shipping Company), also named HDS lines. HDS lines is a specialist container carrier under the IRISL Group, according to the American Journal of Transportation.

The new service offers very competitive transit times: 19 days between Le Havre and Bandar Abbas, for example. It will call at the following ports: Bandar Abbas, Asalouyeh, Bandar Imam Khomeini, Bushehr and Khorramshahr in Iran and the port of Um Qasr in Iraq.

The service will also call at the ports of Malta, KhorFakkam, Jebel Ali, Xingang, Busan, Qingdao, Shanghai, Ningbo, Yantian and Port Kelang.
