United Arab Shipping Co. (UASC) launches a new service IMR (Indian Subcontinent–Middle East–Red Sea Service) covering Pakistan & India to Arabian Gulf and Red Sea destinations. It similarly connects the Arabian Gulf to Red Sea destinations.
The new IMR service deploys a total of six 2,000 TEU vessels. Port rotation on the IMR Service is as follows: Karachi–Port Qasim-Pipapav–Nhava Sheva–Ras Al Khaimah–Jebel Ali–Djibouti-Jeddah–Yanbu–Aqaba–Sohkna-Jeddah–Port Sudan-Hodeidah–Ras Al Khaimah–Jebel Ali–Karachi.
