DOHA: May 02, 2018. Milaha, a Qatar-based maritime transport and logistics corporation, will launch a two-day container feeder service between Qatar and Iraq on May 07, 2018.

Shipments are expected to include dry and refrigerated food stuff, consumer electronics and construction materials.

Commenting on the launch of the new service, Milaha president and CEO Abdulrahman Essa Al-Mannai said: “There has been excellent demand on the Qatar-Kuwait service that we launched last year, and we have been looking at ways to further expand that service to give our Iraqi clients and partners more convenience through greater port coverage and reduced transit times.
