The Saudi Ports Authority (MAWANI) has revealed the addition of Jubail Commercial Port to the India Gulf Service 1 (IG1) shipping route by ocean carrier Hapag-Lloyd.
This announcement came on 23 January.
The newest cargo service will upscale the Saudi Arabia’s integration with global trade networks.
Kicking off on 12 February, the weekly service will link the Kingdom to the ports of Jebel Ali, Karachi, Mundra, Sohar, Shuaiba, and Umm Qasar on board three containerships with an average carrying capacity of 2,400 TEU.
This comes only weeks after MSC had connected Jubail Commercial Port to the India-East Med route, according to MAWANI.
