December 23, 2020

KARACHI -- Pakistan International Container Terminal (PICT), managed by Phiippines'-headquartered ICTSI, has welcomed the inaugural call of a newly-launched Pakistan-United Arab Emirates (PS2) shipping service.

Jointly operated by Wan Hai Lines with Global Feeder Shipping, the point-to-point service links the ports of Jebel Ali and Karachi, using a single vessel with a nominal capacity of 1,800 TEU.

The new service expected to further strengthen trade patronage with the Gulf market by handling increased cargo through non-vessel-operating common carriers and mainline operators.

PICT CEO, Khurram Khan, said: "With the commencement of the PS2 Service, PICT looks forward to enhancing its Gulf cluster of services, providing customers with increasingly frequent vessel connections between Karachi and Jebel Ali." (ATI).
