Major Sea Ports

Hamad/Doha Port
Ras Laffan Port
Al Ruwais Port
Hamad Port is the main seaport of Qatar situated south of Doha. The construction of the port started in 2010 and it was launched for commercial trade in 2016 to replace the older Doha port. It is mostly used for general cargo and particular imports of animals, cars, grains, and cereals. It is operated and managed by Mwani Qatar and controlled by the Ministry of Transport and Communications. It is one of the most important ports in the Middle East and a symbol of Qatar’s National Vision 2030. This port is critical for Qatar’s sea trade industry as well as its socio-economic development. Economic diversification increased competitiveness, and international commerce are all goals of port activities and building, as well as enticing foreign investment. The Hamad Port is around 29 kilometers long and a million-ton grain-handling capability annually.

This port, located on Qatar’s northeast coast, is the world’s largest LNG exporting facility, with the capacity to accommodate the world’s largest carrier ships. It is the world’s largest artificial port, and it is strategically placed on the international marine trade route between the Persian Gulf, the Far East, and Europe, allowing it to carry hydrocarbon commodities to practically every significant part of the globe.

The natural gas industries, which manufacture gas products and derivatives, were mainly shipped from the Ras Laffan port. The port, which spans 850 hectares is encircled by two breakwaters and two entrance channels.
There are multiple berths available for commercial and industrial usage at this port. The port has the most up-to-date equipment, including 150-ton cranes, a sulfur loader capable of handling 1,000 tons per hour, many forklifts, and trailers.

The Port of Al-Ruwais is Qatar’s second-largest commercial port. The port infrastructure, which is located on the northern end of the peninsula, is critical in boosting and diversifying regional cargo exports, as well as revitalizing the economy of northern Qatar by significantly enhancing and growing the amount of sea trade.

Apart from traditional cargoes, Al-Ruwais port also responds to the rising need for groceries, canned foods, meat, and other commodities by acting as an efficient and speedy sea gateway for the delivery of fresh and refrigerated food from neighboring countries. New facilities for handling reefer containers have been prepared for this purpose.
