New shipping service connects Saudi Arabia to the Indian subcontinent

The Ports of Saudi Authority (Mawani) has announced the addition of King Abdulaziz Port to the IMX service, operated by a maritime consortium that includes Qatar-based shipping and logistics conglomerate Milaha, ship operator X-Press Feeders and short-sea carrier Unifeeder belong.

The newly launched service at the Dammam-based hub is expected to expand the Kingdom’s trade scope as well as its maritime connectivity with the rest of the world, a key objective of the National Transport and Logistics Strategy (NTLS).

In addition to King Abdulaziz Port, the IMX route will also call at the ports of Jebel Ali, Khalifa, Nhava Sheva, Hazira, Mundra and Hamad aboard three vessels with a capacity of 3,500 TEU each.

During January this year, a total of five shipping services were added to the commercial hubs of Jeddah, Jubail and Dammam, opening up new trade routes between the Kingdom and 43 global ports.

A premier hub overlooking the Arabian Gulf, King Abdulaziz Port boasts world-class infrastructure and state-of-the-art equipment that offers the highest levels of operational efficiency, scale and reliability.
