Last month, Hamad Port has added five new services to its growing shipping lines network during 2022 as part of its continuous journey of expansion and in view of Qatar's growing trade ties with the rest of the world.
With these new services, the total shipping lines network has reached 28, offering direct and indirect services to over 100 destinations around world.
The new services provide additional opportunities for direct trade between Qatar and the world, cementing the port’s role towards achieving the goals aimed at transforming Qatar into a vibrant regional trade hub, a tweet from Mwani Qatar said, adding it would also provide regular service, faster and cost-effective transit.
"The performance of logistics and operational processes at Hamad Port reflects the major development of the port and the constant attention to improving the quality and productivity in the context of Qatar’s effort to ensuring a smooth flow of cargo and materials to local markets," the Ministry of Transport and Communication had said earlier.
