Khalifa Port Container Terminal Volumes Exceed Projections

Khalifa Port Container Terminal Volumes Exceed Projections

Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT), manager and operator of Khalifa Port Container Terminal, has handled 2 million TEU (20-foot-equivalent units) since the opening of Khalifa Port on December 12, 2012.

The 2 million TEU mark surpasses the initial target and represents a 20% year-on-year increase in containers handled by Abu Dhabi Terminals at Khalifa Port Container Terminal.

This increase in throughput is driven by a strong increase in both import and export items with volume growth alongside continued high demand from local and global customers.

ADT’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Martijn van de Linde attributed the increase of Khalifa Port’s container traffic to the efficiency and productivity at Khalifa Port and strong support from the shipping and logistics community that have made Khalifa Port as their hub.

“Passing this latest record demonstrates the extremely robust position of Khalifa Port Container Terminal due to its diverse and increasing trade base, strategic location and significant hinterland connections,” said Martijn van de Linde. “We are continuously committed to support the economic growth of the UAE and at the same time provide our customers with fast and efficient services.”
