Though QNA did not disclose what the first shipments contained, an official previously told Doha News that automobiles and animals would be among the first commercial items to be shipped into the port.
By the end of this year, vessels carrying livestock and automobiles will start unloading at the new $7.4 billion (QR27 billion) port, which is located in Umm Al-Houl near Mesaieed. “We’re beginning to look like a port now,” one official said.
