A video released by EMC, the investor behind Abu Dhabi’s Khalifa Port, shows the port group’s initial plan for moulding Khalifa Port into a world-class hub for trade.
The port is not just a container hub, but is also open to business in the iron ore and petro-chemical markets. EMC made its investment in the port after seeing its potential for trade. The port’s IT infrastructure plays a key part in its operations.
Saif Al Ketbi, Vice President of Information Technology at ADPC IT Services, said: “All operations depend on the IT systems, so if you have a minute or a second down-time at Khalifa Port, you will have at least 2,000 containers stop on the gate, therefore it is important that we have no down time at all.”
In other news, Khalifa Port has recently set a new productivity record of 206 berth moves per hour on the CMA CGM Thames.
