Abu Dhabi Terminals reports 56% growth in Q1

Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT) has posted a 56% year-on-year increase in container handling in the first quarter of 2011, due to heightened infrastructure construction activity, Khaleej Times has reported. ADT handled 161,716 twenty-foot equivalent units, or TEUs, compared to 103,608 TEUs in the same period last year. The rise was marked by the construction activity in the hydrocarbon sector, as the emirate awarded contracts valued at $40bn last year.
