- PRESS RELEASE
Abu Dhabi Terminals 'ADT' announced that it has completed transitioning 30% of its container business from Mina Zayed to the Khalifa Port Container Terminal since port operations began on September 1st.
Khalifa Port Container Terminal will be equipped to handle an initial capacity of 2.5 million TUEs of container traffic annually.
Martijn Van de Linde, Chief Executive Officer of ADT, commented, "ADT is pleased to announce that we are two months ahead of schedule for completing the transitioning of all container traffic from Mina Zayed to the Khalifa Port Container Terminal. We had initially anticipated completion of the transitioning process by the end of Q1 2013, but now we are projecting completion in January 2013. This has been made possible by Khalifa Port's ability to deliver more efficient, cost-effective, and better levels of services since day one of operations, which is a clear demonstration of the Container Terminal delivering its value proposition."
Angelo de Jong, Technical Project Manager, ADT, a key presenter at TOC Container Supply Chain Middle East, presented Khalifa Port Container Terminal as a case study to showcase ADT's experience in building and implementing automation of container solutions.
At TOC Container Supply Chain Middle East, the ADT team also provided delegates with an update on Khalifa Port's development and growth, as well as information regarding how it continuously manages to deliver maximum value for its shareholders, partners, carriers, shipping lines and consignees. In addition, ADT shared its expertise regarding the maintenance of operations equipment in a desert climate, a challenging issue important to many of the delegates in attendance.
Khalifa Port is Abu Dhabi's new logistics hub with the capacity to accommodate Mina Zayed's traffic, as well as the cargo traffic that will be generated by Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi 'Kizad'. With the capacity to handle 15 million TUEs and 35 million tons of general cargo annually, Khalifa Port aims to be one of the world's largest ports by 2030.
