Pakistan International Container Terminal (PICT) has attracted another new service, the FAR Shipping Gulf Service (FGS-1), with the recent maiden call of Thorsky, a 2169 teu container vessel. The service connects PICT Karachi with Mundra, Sohar, Jebel Ali, Dammam, Hamad, and Khalifa ports in the Middle East Gulf.
PICT says it expects the service will lead to increased cargo volumes being handled at the terminal and will strengthen ties with NVOCCs and main line operators. “We welcome the FGS – 1 at our terminal. This will further enrich the regional cluster of services at PICT and provide direct connection between PICT and Sohar,” commented Khurram Khan, PICT Chief Executive Officer.
