Abu Dhabi Ports handled 2.5M TEU in 2019, a 47% increase on 2018.

The 2.5 million TEU milestone was achieved in the first 11 months of 2019, and Abu Dhabi ports announced the result on 24 December.

Over the same period the company handled more than 20 million tonnes of general cargo across all its ports, surpassing its 2018 full-year performance of 19.7 million tonnes.

Altogether Abu Dhabi Ports (ADP) operates eleven ports and terminals, including cruise facilities.

“These achievements were bolstered largely by the growth in cargo handling performance at both Musaffah Port and Khalifa Port. From January through November, the former reported a 300 percent year-on-year increase, while the latter saw a 25 percent growth year-on-year. Container throughput at Khalifa Port also rose by 63 percent year-on-year during the same period,” ADP stated.

Also in December, ADP took delivery of two new ZPMC STS cranes at its multi-purpose facility Fujairah Terminals as part of its ongoing AED 1 billion expansion programme.

The cranes will add, said ADP, 500,000TEU of additional capacity at Fujairah.

“The arrival of these two new quay cranes is an exciting development in the ongoing expansion of operations at Fujairah Terminals. The ambitious expansion plan underscores our commitment to continuing development of a world-class infrastructure capable of facilitating global trade and logistics and will contribute to the UAE’s economic growth,” said Mr. AbdulAziz Al Balooshi, Acting CEO at Fujairah Terminals.
