Pakistan International Container Terminal (PICT) welcomed the inaugural call of the FAR Shipping Gulf Service-1 (FGS1) at the Port of Karachi on 2 August.

Operated by Far Shipping, the FGS1 service operates between India, Pakistan and the Gulf Region and will be beneficial to the regional trade.

“We welcome the FGS-1 at our terminal. This service further enriches the regional cluster of services at PICT and provides direct connection between PICT and Sohar,” says Khurram Aziz Khan, PICT Chief Executive Officer.

Through its partnership with FGS-1, PICT looks to further strengthen its corporate ties and handle increased cargo through NVOCCs and main line operators.

 The FAR Shipping Gulf Service-1’s inaugural call at PICT was marked by the arrival of the 2,169-TEU MV Thorsky on 2 August.
