Qasim International Container Terminal is blessed with multimodal connectivity only few terminals can boast of.
DP World Karachi is closer to vital up-country markets from where 70% of our exports are originated. Being at a strategic location i.e. Port Qasim which is 15 kms from the National highway making it very well connected with the Hinterland through road and 14kms of railway link inside the terminal to the National railway network through 6 railway tracks is another very convenient connection to the hinterland. As 60 to 70% of imports and exports originate from the hinterland DP World Karachi is ideally suited for trade with the hinterland.
