The newly established Fujairah Terminals, under the management of Abu Dhabi Ports, has welcomed its first container feeder vessel, the Dubai Alliance, reported Gulf News.
This is the first ship to arrive at the terminal, which is wholly owned by Abu Dhabi Ports, the master developer, operator and manager of commercial and community ports within the emirate of Abu Dhabi, Fujairah Port and Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD), following the signing of a concession agreement with the Port of Fujairah in June this year.
Under a 35-year concession, Abu Dhabi Ports has the exclusive rights to develop port infrastructure and undertake operations for containers, general cargo, roll-on roll-off and cruise ships.
Captain Mohammad Juma Al Shamisi, CEO of Abu Dhabi Ports, said: “We are marking the beginning of a new era for both Abu Dhabi Ports
and the Port of Fujairah under the new management of Fujairah Terminals.”
Dubai Alliance is a vessel under Star Feeders LLC, a specialist short-sea common carrier container feeder service that operates a feeder network between
UAE ports. The ship called at Fujairah Terminals to deliver a container for local industries and to receive containers for onward shipments.
