There is more good news for people who are worries about the blockade on Qatar and its effects on food supply within the country.

The Qatar Ports Management Company, Mwani Qatar, has announced the launch of a new direct service between Hamad Port and Sohar Port, Oman, which will have a frequency of three times a week, reported Gulf Times.

The new service, which comes under Milaha’s DMJ service, is part of the efforts of Ministry of Transport and Communications to build new partnerships to meet the growing needs of the local market and to strengthen Hamad Port as a vital business hub in the region.

This is part of the efforts to make Hamad Port a vital business hub in the region, said Mwani Qatar during a Press conference yesterday.

“In light of the recent developments in the region, Mwani Qatar and its partners have ensured the business continuity of its ports and shipping operations in and out of Qatar to mitigate the impact of any action that would affect the imports and exports to and from the country,” said Hamad Port Director Captain Abdul Aziz Al Yafei.

Container ship Hansa Neuburg, which is operating under Milaha’s DMJ service from Sohar Port to Hamad Port, arrived in Hamad Port today. The ship is bringing in different cargoes for customers in Qatar including 133 cold storage reefers that contain food supplies, reported The Peninsula.

Regular services from Oman’s Sohar Port have been introduced to ensure smooth functioning of the economy in the short term. Cargoes, which may have had problems reaching Qatar in the last few days, are now in route to Hamad Port and are scheduled to arrive in Qatar within the week,” the Hamad Port Director said.
