UAE. Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT) reports the continued growth of cargo and passenger handling at its main port in Mina Zayed during the first quarter of 2012.


Notes:
TEU is an industry norm for twenty foot equivalent units.
Freight tons relate to the weight or cubic measure of the cargo.

Commenting on the growth Mr. Martijn Van de Linde, ADT’s CEO, said: “It is very rewarding to see the continued growth in cargo handling in Abu Dhabi. The vast majority of our nation’s international trade is seaborne, so this is also a good indication that Abu Dhabi’s population and economy are developing favourably and that the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030 is on track.”

Van de Linde continued: “At ADT we are the interface between Abu Dhabi’s businesses and the global markets. We have worked hard to ensure we offer the services needed, so I am proud to see the response from the importers and exporters. The growth also reaffirms that the decision to develop the new container terminal at Khalifa Port was right, and we are excited about opening the region’s first semi-automated facility in the fourth quarter of this year.”
