The first transit consignment of bulk cargo from UAE arrived at Pakistan’s Gwadar port on Sunday, and will now make its way to Afghanistan.
“The first transit consignment of bulk cargo through Gwadar to Afghanistan started today. Several consignments are lined up for coming days,” Mohammad Sadiq, Pakistan’s special envoy for Afghanistan, wrote on Twitter.
The UAE ship was anchored at the port and the goods will be transported to Afghanistan after customs clearance.
In late May, the first cargo ship, Sibulk Tradition, had berthed at Gwadar, carrying 16,000 tonnes of urea for transit to Afghanistan.
