Jebel Ali Port transports four mega reactors to Netherlands
DP World’s flagship Jebel Ali Port shipped four mega polyethylene reactors, the largest weighing 227 tonnes, to Rotterdam in collaboration with the CMA CGM Group, a shipping and logistics company.
The shipment was handled with the help of a floating crane from Drydocks World and was loaded on two consecutive sailings.
As one of the largest project cargoes loaded on a container ship in the Middle East, the operation mobilised more than 100 specialists across the entire supply chain and involved methodical planning and safe execution. In total, 839 tonnes of cargo, measuring 35m in length, 7m in height, and 7m in width, were transported, occupying 424 TEU slots.
Shahab Al Jassmi, Commercial Director of Ports and Terminals – DP World, UAE Region said: “We firmly believe in constantly reinventing to meet the requirements of this dynamic market and our clients’ needs. The innovative solutions Jebel Ali Port offers make it the most preferred destination in the region.
“As one of the largest in the Middle East, the port enables trade and offers seamless connectivity to more than 3.5 billion consumers. Our collaboration with the CMA CGM Group, and the completion of this operation underscored the importance of DP World, UAE Region’s advanced capabilities, reaffirming the faith of key players in the industry.”
The remarkable execution of this project proves the port’s capability of handling the growing demand for heavy lift and project cargo, regardless of the size or weight.
Romain Vigneaux, Dubai Agency General Manager, CMA CGM Group stated: “This shipment is a milestone achievement for Jebel Ali, and the container sector in the UAE. It testifies our expertise in shipping highly technical projects, while offering key advantages such as regular and reliable sailings with high-frequency and fast transit time.
