AD Ports, Transmar announce new Pakistan service

AD Ports Group and Transmar International Shipping Company have launched a new container shipping service that will link the port of Karachi in Pakistan with major maritime economies of the Middle East and East Africa.

The new service will provide weekly connections for cargo linking Karachi with the region’s major ports in UAE (Khalifa), Saudi Arabia (Dammam and Jeddah), Egypt (Sokhna and Adabiya), Jordan (Aqaba), Sudan and Djibouti.

The launch of the new Pakistan route follows AD Ports Group’s acquisition of a 70% shareholding in Egypt-based Transmar and Transcargo International S.A.E. (TCI) in September 2022.

The new service uses containers provided by Transmar on slots, largely provided by other AD Ports Group companies SAFEEN Feeders and Global Feeder Shipping (GFS), which it acquired earlier this month.

Captain Ammar Mubarak Al Shaiba, acting CEO of Maritime Cluster and SAFEEN Group, AD Ports Group commented, "The new weekly service will connect Pakistan’s busiest port with key maritime hubs across the Gulf, Red Sea, and East Africa, enabling the region to foster and increase integrated and collaborative trading partnerships."
