Basra Gateway Terminal (BGT), ICTSI’s operation at the Port of Umm Qasr in Iraq, received the first direct cargo service between the United Arab Emirates and Iraq.
The service connects Jebel Ali in Dubai to Umm Qasr with fast, efficient and secure roll-on-roll-off (RoRo) shipments. In addition, the service offers a shortened alternative travel time of 36 hours from Jebel Ali Port to Umm Qasr Port.
The service is intended for unaccompanied trailers transported by sea without truck cabs. Specifically, from Jebel Ali port, the trailers are loaded onto the ship and unloaded at Umm Qasr port, where a local truck transports them directly to the final destination.
