Khalifa Port Fifth Most Productive

Khalifa Port Fifth Most Productive

Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT) has announced that Khalifa Port ranked fifth in Journal of Commerce’s 2013 Europe Middle East and Africa Port Productivity list.


The Journal of Commerce, an independent research firm that focuses on global trade topics, measured the number of container moves per-vessel, per-hour at the world’s ports and marine terminals in 2013.

As mega-container ships replace smaller vessels, port productivity, turnaround times and throughput time for containers are important metrics for carriers and trade customers in order to realize significant cost savings.

Martijn van de Linde, Chief Executive Officer, ADT, said: “We are very proud to rank fifth in the EMEA Port Productivity list in our first year of operations.

Khalifa Port Container Terminal has been constructed to achieve high productivity levels; this not only increases turnaround time for ships, but also benefits the supply chain and local trade as cargo moves faster through the port.”

Considerable productivity progress has also been made on the landside as truck turnaround time currently stands at 12 minutes which makes Khalifa Port Container Terminal the most efficient in the region.

The port’s congestion free access and a robust network of road and future rail connectors add additional value to the trade and its service providers.

The Journal of Commerce Port Productivity rankings were determined by evaluating 483 ports and 771 terminals and analyzing more than 150,000 port calls in 2013.

A National Program has been launched, devoting nearly £65 billion to help modernize and develop four leading ports, construct ten specialized terminals and grow Mexico’s cargo handling capacity by 60%.

There has been a £2.9 billion investment into expanding the port of Veracruz which will increase the port’s terminals from 18 to 28 and enhance its cargo capacity to 116 million tons.
