Abu Dhabi Ports’ amplified general and bulk cargo volumes in the first three quarters of 2015 show that the tactic to put in inventive technologies, state-of-the-art infrastructure and client concentrated services has paid off.

The oldest commercial port in Abu Dhabi, Zayed Port operated the huge bulk of steel imported and exported in the Emirate. Zayed Port also remarked 13% progress in general and bulk cargo volumes in the first nine months of 2015 compared to the similar time in 2014.

Latest modern cranes and other gears, and execution of latest technologies such as a terminal operating system, Jade Master Terminal, as part of a continuing improvement have helped Abu Dhabi Ports optimize its efficiency and production across the ports.

The increase across Abu Dhabi Ports signifies escalating export and import activities in relation to the infrastructure and  industrial development projects in the Emirate.
