Our vision of “Linking the Middle East to the World” began in 1976, when UASC was formed jointly between the Kingdom of Bahrain, the Republic of Iraq, the State of Kuwait, the State of Qatar, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.
Originally established in Kuwait with its Corporate Headquarters now in Dubai, UASC serves Asia from Singapore, Northern Europe from Hamburg, the Middle East and Indian Subcontinent from Dubai, the Mediterranean and North Africa from Istanbul, and the Americas from Cranford, New Jersey, USA.
After more than 38 years of reliable service, UASC has earned its name as a market leader by being one of the most prominent carriers both in terms of liner cargo as well as port coverage.
