Fujairah Terminals to provide livestock logistics to Al Mayya
Abu Dhabi Ports subsidiary Fujairah Terminals has inked and agreement with Al Mayya Group to handle the livestock logistics for the annual import of more than a million sheep, goat, and cattle into the UAE.
The former will offer Al Mayya Group exclusive rights to service livestock at a specially designated quarantine and berth area situated within its terminal facilities at the Port of Fujairah.
Fujairah’s strategic location on the UAE’s eastern seaboard ensures a shorter sailing time to and from key destinations including East Africa. The port, situated on the Arabian Sea, lies within 300km of all seven emirates. It will easily connect Al Mayya Group’s allocated port-side area to its other inland facilities across the UAE.
AbdulAziz Al Balooshi, CEO at Fujairah Terminals, said: “Fujairah Terminals’ landmark agreement with Al Mayya Group demonstrates our ability to tailor customer-centric solutions that enable the streamlining and enhancement of global trade.
“Underscored by the support of the government and Abu Dhabi Ports’ advanced technology and handling capabilities, Fujairah Terminals is well equipped to meet the market’s increasingly wide spectrum of demands and requirements.
“As the only multipurpose port on the UAE’s eastern seaboard, Fujairah Terminals’ advanced infrastructure and ultra-modern facilities is ideally placed to readily connect and handle inbound sensitive cargo directly from East Africa.”
