DP World has opened an inland container terminal (ICT) in Lahore, Pakistan.

DP World Lahore, also known as the Prem Nagar Dry Port, is the first public private partnership project of the Ministry of Railways.

It is well positioned to serve Pakistan’s largest hinterland market, the Lahore-Sahiwal region, and is directly linked by rail to Qasim International Container Terminal, a gateway port managed and operated by DP World Karachi.

The ICT facility is built on 40ha of land and is connected by an extensive network of railway lines and roads.

The terminal will be managed and operated by DP World in a joint venture with Premier Mercantile Services, one of Pakistan’s largest maritime terminal operators.

DP World Lahore is equipped with a 25,000ft² container freight station and will provide local haulage services beyond the gate to the customers’ doorstep.
