Sigmai Trade and Logistics Ltd. Communicates Shipment and Transhipment Solutions to Jordan
Sigmai Trade and Logistics Ltd. wishes to draw your attention to shipment and transhipment solutions available to exporters to Jordan whose trade has been severely affected by the current political situation in the Middle East and the sanctions against Syria.
Traditionally, Syria is a major gateway for European and other cargo destined for Jordan, however, current blockage on Syrian ports and trade routes have made them impassable or endanger the safety of the cargo.
The Israeli government has responded to this situation by offering HAIFA as a fast and convenient transhipment port for any type of cargo en-route to inland destinations in Jordan. The modern port of Haifa is capable of handling large capacity cargo on any type container, break-bulk and ro-ro vessels.
Vessels calling on Haifa with cargo for Jordan have been prioritized and the cargo is transferred mostly on the same day to Sheikh Hussein Bridge (the cross border between Israel and Jordan- Jordan river Border Crossing).
Sigmai has a proven track record of forwarding cargo to and through Jordan for many years, and is familiar with the customs and forwarding requirements between both countries. Sigmai has been forwarding FCL, break-bulk cargo such as agricultural products and commodities combining trucking and marine freight on ro-ro vessels at minimum transit time.
Transhipment options are tailored to accommodate cargo from and to East and West Europe, Turkey and even the USA depending on the port of loading, destination and other restrictions or preferences.
Sigmai offers colleagues to benefit from its sound forwarding experience and procedures already established with the local and Jordanian customs authorities and the personal and professional services of its offices operating at the port of Haifa and the Sheik Hussein Bridge (Jordan River Border Crossing).
