The Saudi Arabian Ports Authority (Mawani) has announced the addition of Jubail Commercial Port to the Indian Gulf Service 1 (IG1) shipping route via Hapag-Lloyd.
The latest cargo service will help achieve the goals of the National Transport and Logistics Strategy (NTLS) to increase the Kingdom’s integration into global trade networks and improve the UNCTAD-Liner Shipping Connectivity Index to 80 points.
Starting February 12, the weekly service will connect the Kingdom to the ports of Jebel Ali, Karachi, Mundra, Sohar, Shuaiba, and Umm Qasar with three containerships with an average capacity of 2,400 TEU.
The Arabian Gulf port is a strategic commercial gateway to the eastern part of the Kingdom and its industrial and petrochemical complexes. The Gulf port is equipped to handle all types of ships and goods and offers a range of world-class offerings to local importers and exporters.
