Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT) has announced that on October 28 it set a new record by handling 5 million TEU representing a milestone achievement for Khalifa Port Container Terminal (KPCT). The record number was achieved serving the CMA CGM, a vessel belonging to ADT’s long-term customer, CMA CGM Pegasus.

The new throughput milestone follows terminal operator ADT’s success in the first half of 2016, which saw Khalifa Port handle 11% more containers than the same period in 2015. Notable and consistent year-on-year growth since KPTC’s inauguration in 2012 represents its increasing role as a crucial logistics hub connecting local and regional trade to global markets.

It also represents the success of ADT’s significant investments in KPCT’s infrastructure and facilities to create the Middle East’s first semi-automated and most technologically advanced container terminal.

Martijn van De Linde, CEO, Abu Dhabi Terminals, said: “This milestone represents a great achievement in KPCT’s relatively short operational period and truly demonstrates that ADT is on track to become one of the leading container terminal operators in the world. It is a testament to ADT’s vision and spirit, and the investments we have made to continually improve and expand our capabilities and resources,

“We pride ourselves on our commitment to our loyal customers and they share in our success and we will continue to strive to exceed their expectations going forward,”

The milestone comes after ADT celebrated ten years of operation at Khalifa earlier in 2016.
