KPT sees the commissioning of an oil pier

KPT Oil Pier No.OP-2 is temporarily commissioned for shipping operation/berthing effective 29 February 2024, and the remaining maintenance dredging work will be intimated later. Hence, OP-2 is operational with the limitation of berthing tankers, according to GAC Pakistan.

Karachi Port lies on a strategic point along the 600-mile-long coastline that stretches from the straits of Hormuz to the border with India. It has an ideal location and well-developed connections with Afghanistan, Central Asia and Western China and deserves the nickname and gateways to the region. KPT has consistently maximised this potential with enlightened policies.

Karachi Port provides 24/7 safe navigation to the port traffic, including tankers, modern container vessels, bulk carriers and general cargo ships up to 75,000 DWT. The port has 30 dry cargo and three liquid cargo handling berths, including a privately operated container terminal – Karachi International Container Terminal (KICT), which is fully equipped with all modern technologies. Karachi port facilitates around 1600 ships annually, and there is enough capacity to handle more cargo as the current occupancy is only around 45%.
