UAE: ADPC Wins Prestigious Award

Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC), the master developer of ports and industrial zones, has won the Lloyd’s List “Port Operator of the Year” award at the Lloyd’s List Middle East and Indian Subcontinent Awards.

Amongst all shortlisted candidates, ADPC managed to convince the jury with its sustained commitment to operational efficiency, ease of business and exceptional customer service.

Additionally, the jury mentioned ADPC’s semi-automated terminal at Khalifa Port as well as its continuous effort to simplify services for customers, successfully implementing E-passes, numerous online processes, and the automated gates which speed the process of cargo release allowing faster turnaround times.

Sultan Al Jaberi, ADPC’s Vice President, Regulations, Compliance and Health, Safety and Environment (HSE), accepted the award on behalf of the organization at an official award’s ceremony which took place last week at the Grand Hyatt Hotel Dubai.

Commenting on the award, Mohamed Al Shamisi, Acting CEO, ADPC said: “We are very delighted to have been given this award as it recognizes our hard work and continuous endeavor to maintain our high standards of port operations and customer service. This is a further confirmation of our strong commitment to deliver world class services and facilities and another sign that we are on the right track towards contributing to Abu Dhabi’s Economic Vision 2030.

As the most widely read global maritime publication, the Lloyd’s List Awards are independently judged and highly regarded. The distinguished panel of judges reported that this year’s entries for the Middle East and Indian Subcontinent were 30% more than last year with an exceptionally high quality, underlining the region’s new way of engagement in shipping, with a new dynamism and a flair for innovation.
