Journal of Commerce (JOC) has named Jebel Ali Port as the world’s most productive, registering 131 moves per ship per hour, up 10% from the 119 moves recorded in 2013.

The DP World facility was ranked based on JOC’s analysis of more than 125,000 port calls in 2014, beating six ports in China, one in Japan and one in South Korea, in the Global Top 10 for the year. Gulftainer’s Khor Fakkan Port in Sharjah took tenth place.

HE Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, chair of DP World, said: “DP World’s commitment to be the best in the world is in line with the vision for Dubai laid out by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai.

“The productivity achievement is also a reflection of our unshakeable belief that investing in our people and technology is the best way to deliver service excellence to our customers and support Dubai and the UAE’s development,” he added.

DP World, UAE Region, led by Jebel Ali Port, handled 15.2million TEU in 2014, while another strong quarter was recorded in Q1, 2015 handling 3.9 million TEU, representing growth of 7.7%, during the same period.

With its semi-automated Terminal 3 nearing completion Jebel Ali will be able to handle more of the largest container vessels with the same efficiency that placed it at the top of the world.
