Expansion of Jebel Ali harbor underway

DP World will complete the phase two expansion of its Jebel Ali harbour - Container Terminal 2 of Jebel Ali Port - by the end of this year, a senior official said, reported Gulf News. Mohammad Al Muallem, senior vice-president and managing director of DP World - UAE, said it is constantly developing strategies, modernising facilities and introducing new operational processes to meet the needs and expectations of customers. The expansion works at Container Terminal 2 will raise Jebel Ali port's handling capacity to 15 million TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) and enable it to accommodate mega ships of more than 12,000 TEUs, which are expected to enter the industry soon.
