Pakistan National Shipping Corporation (PNSC) has announced the acquisition of M.T Mardan, inducted into its fleet on August 3rd, 2022. The other vessel, M.T Sargodha, will be inducted within a week. With the induction of these two vessels, PNSC’s carrying capacity will increase to 107,123 Metric tons; the highest PNSC has achieved since its inception in 1979.
This acquisition will increase employment opportunities for Pakistani seafarers. Employing these oil tankers in the oil trade will reduce the outflow of foreign exchange from the exchequer.
Chairman Rizwan Ahmed Sheikh lauded the support and efforts of the PNSC Board of Directors and Management in making this task possible.
