Our operations at Port Khalid
Duty Free Shops: The two duty free shops managed by Bhatia Traders cater to the needs of permanent port staff, visiting ship crew members, visiting cruise liners as well as wholesale requirements of ships.
An added convenience to shoppers is the free pick up and drop service from ships to the shop. Whenever a new ship docks at the port, a mini bus is dispatched to pick up the ship crew and guests. The service-oriented staff makes duty free shopping a pleasant and enjoyable experience.
