United Arab Shipping Company opened its own shipping agency in Pakistan in a joint venture with its erstwhile third party agent, Delta Shipping.
The new company, called United Arab Shipping Agencies Company Pakistan, took over agency functions as of July 1.
“The establishment of UASAC Pakistan is part of UASC’s long-term growth and regional expansion plans involving the acquisition of local agents and staging for an integrated global operation,” the Kuwait-based carrier said.
UASAC Pakistan has its headquarters in Karachi and branches at Lahore and Faisalabad.
UASC is a leading liner operator to and from the Indian subcontinent, providing regular weekly connections to key trade lanes of Europe, the U.S. East Coast and the Far East.
