Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT) announced that it had handled more than 10 million containers at Khalifa Port Container Terminal (KPCT) to date, achieving the throughput milestone while serving the MV MSC Alexandra, a vessel deployed on the 2M DRAGON/AE20 service belonging to ADT’s partner and customer Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC).

According to state news agency, Wam, Khalifa Port handled 51% more containers in Q2 2019 than it did in the same period last year, which reflects the Abu Dhabi government’s increased investments in KPCT’s infrastructure and facilities to make it the Middle East’s first semi-automated and most technologically advanced container terminal.

Commenting on the milestone, acting chief executive officer of ADT, Abdullah Al Hameli, said: “Handling more than 10 million TEUs is an achievement from long-term plan to enhance the company contribution to the growth of the non-oil GDP of Abu Dhabi."
