ICTSI Pakistan welcomes new service

Pakistan International Container Terminal (PICT) has welcomed the inaugural call of the newly launched Pakistan – United Arab Emirates (PS2) Service, according to International Container Terminal Services Inc, (ICTSI).

Jointly operated by Wan Hai Lines with Global Feeder Shipping, the point-to-point service links the ports of Jebel Ali and Karachi and uses a single vessel with a nominal capacity of 1,800 TEUs. With this service, PICT looks to further strengthen trade patronage with the Gulf market by handling increased cargo through non-vessel operating common carriers and mainline operators.

“With the commencement of the PS2 Service, PICT looks forward to enhance its Gulf cluster of services, which will provide our customers with increasingly frequent vessel connections between Karachi and Jebel Ali,” said Khurram Khan, PICT Chief Executive Officer.

It is the latest move from ICTSI to increase traffic and operational efficiency. Earlier in December, it announced it had joined a new intermodal rail initiative in the Port of Gdynia, Poland.

Pakistan is growing in importance as a maritime nation, with its ports playing a big role in the flow of trade, in particular China’s Belt and Road Initiative.
