Reefer service between Qatar and Turkey launched

Milaha has launched the first direct reefer service between Qatar and Turkey. Over the past few weeks, the Qatar-based maritime transport and logistics conglomerate had arranged two ad hoc voyages of reefer vessels from Turkey to Qatar.

The company has moved to regularise the service, with departures every 20-25 days between Hamad Port and Port of Izmir, with a short transit time of 11 days.

The new service will be initially operated with one vessel with a capacity of over 5,000 tonnes per voyage, and will cater mainly to temperature-controlled cargo and breakbulk, with the option of adding containers upon request.

On the launch of the new service, Milaha’s President and CEO Abdulrahman Essa al-Mannai said, “Trade volumes between Qatar and Turkey have significantly increased over the past few months, and we are launching this service as a cost-effective and efficient solution for this growing demand. This service perfectly complements our existing services, and will further enhance connectivity and facilitate trade between Qatari, Arabian Gulf, and Turkish importers and exporters.”
