Milaha signs agreement with Muntajat
Qatar shipping company Milaha has signed a two-year agreement with Qatar Chemical and Petrochemical Marketing and Distribution Company (Muntajat) to transport petrochemicals exports from Qatar.
According to the deal Milaha will transport containerised exports of polymers and melamine for Muntajat from Mesaieed Port in Qatar to key hub ports in the region. International shipping lines will then deliver the goods to destinations around the world.
As part of the agreement, Milaha is also responsible for re-positioning empty containers back to Mesaieed. Total annual volume of exports alone is expected to reach approximately 150,000-teu.
Milaha chairman H E Sheikh Ali bin Jassim Al Thani says the agreement is another sign his company has been forging strong relationships with Qatar’s energy suppliers.
“We have, over the years, built a close relationship with QAPCO, Q-Chem, Qatofin, and more recently with Muntajat, and we are very pleased to be able to extend and expand this relationship,” Al Thani said.
“Our fleet of eight fully-cellularised container vessels is ideal to cater for our partners’ requirements. We aim to continue to serve them in the best possible manner and bring added value to this critical sector for Qatar,” Al Thani added.
On his behalf, Abdulrahman Ali Al Abdulla, CEO of Muntajat said; “We are proud to be collaborating with Milaha, one of the oldest established companies in Qatar, to bring Qatar’s chemical and petrochemical exports to the world.”
