New Reefer Service Between Qatar and Turkey

In August 2017 Milaha, a Qatar-based maritime transport and logistics conglomerate, has announced the launch of the first direct reefer service between Qatar and Turkey.

Over the past few weeks, Milaha had arranged two ad hoc voyages of reefer vessels from Turkey to Qatar

However, 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 tons per voyage, and will cater mainly to temperature-controlled cargo and breakbulk, with the option of adding containers upon request.
