Milaha has announced the enhancement of its existing feeder service between Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT), India’s busiest container gateway, and Hamad Port, Qatar.

The new weekly service, named the India-Qatar Express (IQX), will connect the ports of JNPT and Mundra to Hamad Port, and will accept local and transshipment cargo from all Indian ports, South-East Asia and the Far East via Mundra.

Milaha’s President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Abdulrahman Essa Al-Mannai, said: "Since we started the first ever direct service between JNPT and Qatar two years ago, we have seen growing demand from importers, exporters and mainline operators for additional capacity, so we decided to act on this demand. The new service will further drive trade growth between India and Qatar, and build on the strong economic ties."

The IQX service will be operated with two 1,700 Twenty Foot Equivalent Unit (TEU) vessels. Milaha is represented in India by Mumbai-based Poseidon Shipping Agency, said a release.

Milaha’s current activities include marine transportation in gas, petroleum products, containers and bulk; offshore support services; port management and operations; logistics services; shipyard; trading agencies; real estate investments; and asset management.
