- Business & Finance
The world-class services and facilities of DP World’s flagship Jebel Ali Port have once again been recognised at the prestigious annual Supply Chain and Transport Awards (SCATA) 2014.
For the sixth year, the ‘Shipping Port of the Year’ has been awarded to Jebel Ali Port. The award was received on behalf of DP World by Abdulla Bin Damithan, Commercial Director, DP World, UAE Region, at the SCATA 8th gala, attended by hundreds of supply chain industry leaders.
The magazine publisher ITP Business annual gala celebrates the Middle East logistics industry’s achievements. In the event held last week in Dubai, DP World also won the Corporate Social Responsibility Award (CSR) for its outstanding contribution to the UAE community.
The CSR award received by Saeed Al Zari, Account Manager, DP World, UAE Region, recognises DP World’s efforts to operate in a responsible manner in all aspects of its activities, which impact customers, employees, shareholders, communities and the environment.
Jebel Ali Port’s container capacity will reach 19 million (twenty foot equivalent container units) this year, once the 4 million TEU capacity Terminal 3 is completed. Jebel Ali will be able to handle up to 10 of the next generation mega vessels at the same time – the only port in the region able to do so.
