First Direct UAE-Iraq Freight Service

Basra Gateway Terminal (BGT)International Container Terminal Services, Inc.’s (ICTSI) operation at the Port of Umm Qasr, recently welcomed the first direct freight service between the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Iraq.

Operated by DP World, the service connects Jebel Ali in Dubai with Umm Qasr and potentially all of Iraq with what a press release describes as, “fast, efficient and safe roll-on, roll-off (RoRo) shipments.” Compared to the usual 14-day period for cross-border land transport between the two countries, the service offers a drastically cut alternative travel time of only 36-hours from the Port of Jebel Ali to the Port of Umm Qasr, it adds.
