AD Ports Group, the leading facilitator for global trade, logistics and industry, announced that its flagship deepwater port, Khalifa Port, was ranked the third most efficient container port in the world in the recently released Container Port Performance Index (CPPI). developed by the World Bank and S&P Global Market Intelligence.
Being placed in 2022 as the third most efficient container port in the world is the result of the port’s continued investment in infrastructure and focused efforts to improve operational efficiency, which continues to be a commercial differentiator and attracts three of the world’s largest container shipping lines as strategic partners, thereby increasing connectivity and attractiveness of Abu Dhabi and the United Arab Emirates as a hub for world trade.
Measured over the course of 2022, the ranking is based on the time ships spend in port completing cargo exchange. Khalifa Port ranked 5th in the 2021 CPPI report.
Saif Al Mazrouei, Chief Executive Officer of AD Ports Group’s Ports Cluster, said: “Khalifa Port’s continued improvement in CPPI efficiency ranking is a direct result of the continued efforts of our teams engaged in day-to-day operations. Their commitment to operational excellence and safety, along with the state-of-the-art infrastructure at Khalifa Port, earned us this higher rating. Our aim is to offer our partners and customers the highest service standards. We strive to stay at the forefront of technology use and innovation so that we can offer our customers solutions that contribute to their overall experience with us and the improved performance of their business.”
In the latest CPPI report, four of the top ten most efficient ports in the world are in the Arab world, with the port of Salalah in Oman, the port of Hamad in Qatar and Port Said in Egypt leading alongside the port of Khalifa.
