JEBEL ALI RETAINS TOP SPOT IN PORT PRODUCTIVITY
Global marine terminal operator DP World’s flagship Jebel Ali Port has demonstrated once again that it delivers by far the world’s best productivity for ships berthed at its docks.
According the latest JOC Port Productivity data, compiled by industry analysts Journal of Commerce, Jebel Ali recorded a world-leading 131 moves per ship per hour in 2014, up 10% from 119 in 2013.
The ranking is based on JOC’s analysis of more than 125,000 port calls in 2014 that placed Jebel Ali form the UAE and six ports from China in the Global Top 10 for the year.
Asian and Middle Eastern ports by far recorded the best productivity for ships at berth and Jebel Ali remains the leader in servicing ocean-going container carriers.
