Pakistan International Container Terminal Services (PICT) welcomed the newly launched UAE-Indian Subcontinent-Gulf service (UIG), with an inaugural call at the Port of Karachi in July.
The UIG feeder service, a joint initiative between Abu Dhabi Ports’ Safeen Feeders and Singapore-based Bengal Tiger Line, covers two loops from the United Arab Emirates to the Indian subcontinent and the upper Gulf region. It strengthens the connection between the East and West trade hubs and significantly enhances the region’s global competitiveness. The service is operated by three 2,800 nominal vessels and connects nine regional ports across the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Pakistan.
“PICT welcomes the UIG service, a joint collaboration of Bengal Tiger Lines & Safeen Feeders. We appreciate this new partnership and look forward to adding value to their product by offering quality services leading to enhanced future growth,” said Khurram Khan, PICT Chief Executive Officer.
With the new service, PICT’s customers will have additional direct port coverage for their cargo between Bahrain and Kandla.
