Sea Freight to Pakistan
International car shipping firms planning on doing business in Pakistan in the years ahead will be interested in the news of the opening of a new inland container terminal in Lahore, Pakistan called DP World Lahore. DP World Lahore is also called Prem Nagar Dry Port, according to sources in the international transport industry, and is the first private partnership project sponsored by Pakistan's Ministry of Railways. A private partnership that could help create more investment in the port system of Pakistan in the years ahead and more jobs for the transport industry of the country.

This new inland container terminal will service Pakistan's largest hinterland market, the Lahore-Sahiwal region, and is linked directly by rail with the Qasim International Container Terminal 600 miles away, an operation managed by DP World Karachi. The opening of this new inland container terminal is also tied to the opening of Terminal 2 in Port Qasim, according to sources in the ocean freight shipping business, is part of DP World's three-part development plan for its business in Pakistan, and one of the largest investments in the port infrastructure of Pakistan in history.

DP World Lahore will be managed and operated by DP World in a combined venture with Premier Mercantile Services, it will also be equipped with a 250,000-square-foot container freight station, and provide local door-to-door transport services. Great news for transport firms in the roro transport business that need to do business in Pakistan in the years ahead.

Ocean Freight Companies
Transport firms shipping a car overseas to Egypt's Port Said will be happy to hear that the latest reports indicate that container handling operations are almost back up to speed after a period of slower than normal operations due to events occurring on the streets of Egypt. Sources in the port indicate that vessels were going through the Suez Canal without interruption, which makes the job of providing international freight shipping services for customers that need freight delivered to Egypt, or points beyond, a lot easier to accomplish.

The protests against the regime of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak are still going strong and constantly in the news, but the protests don't appear to be changing the job of international freight companies using the Suez Canal. A.P. Moeller-Maersk, who operates the Suez Canal Container Terminal at Port Said, indicated recently that more vessels are operating in the container terminal after a slow period the day before.

Things appear to be running smoothly in the Suez Canal and Egypt's Port of Said, but this could change rapidly as long as the protests on the streets of the cities continues to go on. Transport firms that are thinking about using the Suez Canal in the days ahead should probably look at alternate means of transport, if possible, or maybe wait until the trouble has decreased, rather than take a chance that could cost them even more time, money and customer satisfaction.
