The ceremony was held recently as part of the Global Port Forum Award 2020.

The company has made some significant contributions to increase efficiency at the trading ports in Karachi. Commenting on the development, Capt Syed Rashid Jamil, General Manager and Head of Business Unit, Hutchison Ports Pakistan, highlighted that the organisation is committed to revolutionising the way trade is handled at Pakistan’s shipping terminals. “Karachi is an important shipping port connecting many landlocked states with the world through sea.
