Dubai's Ports Container Throughput Milestone

Press Release
Tuesday, February 05, 2013

DP World celebrates the 100 millionth container to pass through DP World, UAE Region terminals in ten years.

The 100 million TEU record was achieved between January 2003 and January 2013 and covers all container boxes handled in both Mina Rashid and Jebel Ali Port. DP World, UAE Region’s annual container throughput increased more than 150% over the decade, from around five million TEU in 2003 to 13.3 million TEU in 2012. In all, the two container ports have handled 135 million TEU since the opening of Jebel Ali Port in 1979, around 75% of it since 2003.

In a recognition of the crucial roles they have played in DP World’s success story, members of the DP World Alumni Network were invited as special guests to celebrations at Jebel Ali Port where the Chairman unveiled a container box painted in company colours, in the presence of senior officials, including Vice Chairman H.E. Jamal Majid Bin Thaniah, Group Chief Executive Officer Mohammed Sharaf, and Senior Vice President and Managing Director of DP World, UAE Region Mohammed Al Muallem – all of whom have played pivotal leadership roles in the company’s emergence as the third largest global marine terminal operator.

Mohammed Al Muallem, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, DP World, UAE Region, said: “DP World has consistently kept pace with the emerging demands of its customers and delivered efficiencies in cost and time. Our on-going plans to increase capacity by 5 million TEU to reach 19 million TEU by 2014 at Jebel Ali is in line with our growth strategy to provide quality services when and where customers need them. Our ability to handle the growth in volumes over the past decade was made possible by the dedication and team work of our UAE Region managers and employees. We thank them for it.”

The expansion work currently underway at Jebel Ali includes adding 1 million TEU in new capacity to Container Terminal 2 (T2) during the first half of this year and the development of a 4 million TEU capacity mega Container Terminal 3 (T3) by 2014. When the expansion work is complete, Jebel Ali Port will be able to handle ten of the next generation 18,000 TEU mega vessels at the same time – the only port in the region able to do so.
