March 18 - Following a record year in 2014, Abu Dhabi Ports is forecasting 17 percent growth across all its general cargo activities in 2015.

In 2014, the Khalifa Port container terminal, which is managed and operated by Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT), saw a record throughput of more than 1 million teus in one year, which marked an increase of 26 percent; while the bulk and general cargo volumes grew by 37 percent compared to the 2013 figures.

"As many development projects in Abu Dhabi are underway, we look ahead to a promising 2015 with healthy growth figures that not only confirm the Emirate's booming economy but Abu Dhabi Port's supporting role as an important enabler for development and trade," said Abu Dhabi Ports ceo Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi.

"We will continue to develop our cutting edge infrastructure and service offerings across all of our ports," he added.


Abu Dhabi Ports recently took part in The Cargo Show, a logistics and transport infrastructure exhibition in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, which was held in Dubai.
