ACT’s throughput reached 500,000 TEU’s/year in 2008 and is forecast to grow significantly in future.
The construction of the ACT and the recent joint venture with between the Ports Corporation and Dubai World Ports are signs that Aden is moving forward. Aden, as a port and as a city, in one of the most interesting countries in the Middle East, anticipates a dynamic and successful future.
