UAE: Jebel Ali Port Achieves New Milestone

Global marine terminal operator DP World today announces that its flagship Jebel Ali Port has achieved a new milestone, handling more than 500,000 vehicles in less than 12 months.

This translates into almost one vehicle imported, exported or re-exported every minute of the day, 24×7.

Mohammed Al Muallem, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, DP World, UAE Region, said:

“DP World is proud that our flagship Jebel Ali Port continues to play its full role as the premier gateway to the GCC region. The record number of vehicles that have passed through the port’s facility for roll-on roll-off (Ro-Ro) vehicle carriers reinforces the growth message for the UAE and the wider region that we are hearing from economic commentators such as the IMF.”

Expansion project

DP World is expanding the capacity of Jebel Ali Port, with a brand new Container Terminal 3, and the expansion of Container Terminal 2, which are set to take total capacity of the port to 19 million TEU (twenty foot equivalent container units) by 2014.

In the first nine months of 2012 DP World, UAE Region, handled almost 10 million TEU, 4.6% ahead of the same period last year.
