Port Agency services are available at Karachi Old Port and Port Qasim, where QDL staff provides 24/7 services to ships, their officers, and crew. Ports and Customs documentation is professionally arranged in a timely manner.

Chartering: The chartering of commercial vessels is an important requirement in the Maritime Sector. QDL engages Tramp Operators to serve Shippers from public sectors, Industrial & Agro Commodity Bulk Suppliers through charter party contracts. The chartering is carried out on both time charter and voyage charter basis for Break-bulk, Neo-bulk, Raw Materials including Urea, Rock Phosphate, Minerals, as well as Heavy/Oversized cargoes.

Consolidation & Break-bulk: Consolidation provides customers with cost-effective movement of LCL shipments. QDL’s strength lies in combining small (LCL) shipments into full container loads (FCL). The service is based on Scheduled Carriers with regular sailings to/from Pakistan. The stuffing takes place at CFS yards, where cargo is brought, stuffed into containers, and then boarded onto vessels in a timely manner, considering delivery time frames. The Port Operations Staff ensures a smooth handover to carriers, as well as Break-bulking, and facilitates customs clearance. QDL issues House B/L on a port-to-port or door-to-door basis as per Seller/Buyer requirements. Pre-carriage and On-carriage arrangements are well-coordinated through overseas Associates for prompt dispatch and distribution.
