Doha: Milaha Maritime & Logistics, a subsidiary of the Qatar-based Milaha Group, has launched the first direct container service between Qatar and India. The non-stop service will connect Qatar’s Doha port with India’s largest port Nhava Sheva, also known as Jawaharlal Nehru Port, located in Mumbai.
With an end of the week sailing, Indian exporters will benefit from a late cut-off providing more time to bring cargo into the port.
Imports into Qatar from India are closing in on $1bn a year.
The new service, which is named NDX, increases Milaha’s presence in non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC) activities.
