Abu Dhabi Terminals
Abu Dhabi - WAM

Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT), manager and operator of the first semi-automated and most technologically advanced container terminal in the Middle East, Khalifa Port Container Terminal, has revealed that the port ranked fifth in the Journal of Commerce's 2013 Europe, Middle East and Africa Port Productivity list.
The Journal of Commerce, an independent research establishment 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 realise significant cost savings.
Martijn Van de Linde, Chief Executive Officer, ADT, commented, "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, which not only increases turnaround time for ships, but also benefits the supply chain and local trade as cargo moves faster through the port." With a depth reaching 17 meters, Khalifa Port Container Terminal is equipped with the latest technology and equipment in the industry making the terminal capable of servicing vessels as quickly and efficiently as possible in this era of mega-ships. The port currently operates nine super post panamax ship-to-shore cranes which can reach across 22 container stacks on a ship, 42 automated stacking cranes and 28 straddle carriers.
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 analysing more than 150,000 port calls in 2013.
ADT, a Private Joint Stock Company (PJSC) owned by Abu Dhabi Ports Company, Mubadala and Mubadala Infrastructure Partners, commenced operations at Khalifa Port Container Terminal in September 2012 and provides a complete and cost-effective supply chain, logistics and warehousing solutions.
