DP World’s Jebel Ali Port is the world’s most productive according to the latest port productivity report from the Journal of Commerce.
The rankings are based on the average moves of containers per ship per hour in 2013, and have been reported by shipping lines themselves, ensuring an objective report.
Jebel Ali Port led the industry with an average of 138 moves per hour.
According to the report, Jebel Ali Port beat 483 ports world-wide, and topped the list of the world’s top 25 ports after analysis of more than 150,000 port calls.
Jebel Ali also tops the list of ports handling ships with capacity of more than 8,000 TEU, with 163 moves per hour.
HE Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, chairman of DP World, said: “We have invested significantly in infrastructure, equipment, technology and training at Jebel Ali to ensure we can serve our customers efficiently and help them realise the benefits of scale the new, larger vessels bring.
“Customer service is at the heart of everything we do and we constantly invest to ensure we stay ahead of demand so our customers can maximise the efficiency of the supply chain and improve their competitiveness.”
