The U.S.-Pakistan Partnership for Agricultural Market Development (AMD) is a USAID funded project which aims to improve the ability of Pakistan’s commercial agriculture and livestock sectors to compete in international and national markets in the four target product lines; meat, high value and off season vegetables, mangoes and citrus. AMD will act as a catalyst for development and investment in target product lines by actively promoting cooperation and coordination amongst the value chain actors and ancillary service providers. AMD’s implementation strategy is underpinned by a strictly commercial and market driven approach with a clear focus on strengthening market access for its partner organizations, and support international marketing and sales efforts.


As part of its effort to support the export of mangos, the AMD project intends to send a hybrid trial shipments (Karachi to Dubai via sea and air shipment beyond Dubai to selected destinations) to reduce freight costs to existing markets and provide access to new export destinations. The proposed hybrid trial shipments aim to support Pakistani mango exporters to expand into existing markets and enter new international markets via sea shipment to Dubai and air shipment beyond Dubai.


For this purpose AMD requires the services of a shipping or freight forwarding company to carry out the inland transportation of cargo from processing unit to Karachi port in two 40 ft reefer containers, handling at Karachi port, sea shipment to Dubai and air shipment from Dubai to Canada (Toronto/Vancouver). The shipping company must be able to secure an NOC from the Autjorities in Dubai regarding holding the shipment in transit and must be able to maintain the cold chain at Dubai during cross docking from sea to air.
