22nd consecutive win demonstrates leadership of DP World’s flagship facility: Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, July 28, 2016:- Global trade enabler DP World’s flagship Jebel Ali Port has been voted “Best Sea Port – Middle East “for the 22nd consecutive year at the recent Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain Awards (AFLAS).

The award was received by Rashid Abdulla, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, DP World, Asia-Pacific Region, on behalf of DP World at a gala ceremony in Shanghai to celebrate excellence in the freight, logistics and supply chain sector.

The AFLAS Awards is an annual event hosted by Asia Cargo News to recognise best performing industry leaders in seaports, airports, shipping, aviation, and logistics. The winners were voted for by over 15,000 Asia Cargo News readers.

Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, DP World Group Chairman and CEO, said: “Our flagship port has been recognised as the Best Sea Port in Middle East for over two decades and this award again demonstrates its role as a gateway hub in the region, reinforcing our role as a leading enabler of world trade.  The reputation of Jebel Ali has been built over time on our operational efficiencies, the work of our employees and our customers without whose support this achievement would not have been possible.

“The AFLAS award in Shanghai underlines the global reputation we have and is a testimony to the excellent teamwork of our people at Jebel Ali Port and their commitment to creating the most productive, efficient and safe services in the region.”

With its state of the art Container Terminal 3 (T3) Jebel Ali Port added 2 million TEU (twenty-foot equivalent units) in 2015 to take its total capacity to 17 million TEU. Jebel Ali’s capacity will reach 19 million TEU this year with the completion of T3 and 22.1 million TEU in 2018 when Phase 1 of Container Terminal 4 (T4) is completed.
