When the company’s operations started in 1958, Milaha chartered several tugs and barges. Over the following years, the company’s fleet grew in number, size, and type of vessels, including owning and operating geared bulk and break bulk carriers. With the transformation of global freight and shipping methods from break bulk to containerized cargoes, the company decided to adapt to that change and started a new building campaign focused on a specialized container vessel. Today Milaha owns and operates a fleet of modern specialized container vessels which is among the largest in the Arabian Gulf and provides daily services to Hamad & Mesaieed Ports linking Qatar with the rest of the world.
Investor relations activities are intended to present shareholders with detailed information and data on Qatar navigation's performance and its achievements during the year, along with outlining major business plans and objectives.
